Article / Theoretical reflections on the concept of genre and the difficulties in its application to tv contents research

Abstract /

Relatively recent academic research on television has led to the assumption –when faced with its own challenges– of the established theories in the study of arts and former media. This article addresses the complexity of adapting a traditional and inherited theory of genre to the features of a different media, with particular dynamics of distribution and consumption by the viewer.
