Academics React to Reality TV

  • Event
Fri 13 November, 7:00pm 48 minutes

This event has now passed. Watch the film above.

In this short film, sociologists Dr Xavier L’Hoiry, Dr Kitty Nichols and Dr Adam Carter explore what reality TV tells us about the world.

Reality TV has in the past two decades become a core part of televisual culture. But more than this, it has in many ways become a cultural artefact of modern life and has seeped into our everyday lives, shaping many aspects of the world around us. Challenging perceptions of gender norms, eliciting debates about mental health, shining a light on racial prejudice – Reality TV may be seen as both a positive and negative influence on contemporary life.
