So you want to study television? Free sample introductions to TV and 'Small Screen' studies

As a follow up to yesterday's post on online introductions to film studies (and to a positive flurry of email responses to it), Film Studies For Free (a veritable addict of screens of all sizes) brings you a list of links to exemplary, freely-available, online essays, sample book chapters, and other resources, all of which give a very rich sense indeed of what it is like to study different kinds of television and related media at university or college. The list begins with the most accessible resources.

If there any other relevant websites or sample introductory book chapters out there that FSFF has inadvertently omitted from this list, please feel free to email with information. (last updated May 12 2009)

There are many, many more Television studies resources out there, and quite a few of them are free like the ones above. Check out some of the sites listed in the post for more information. This was a selection primarily of introductory material aimed at the new(ish) TV/Media studies student. Also check out Flow TV ( and In Media Res ( for great weekly postings on television/screen studies.
