Augmenting proximities theory: Including other proximities in the transnational travel of Danish television drama

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/proceedingBidrag til bog/antologiForskningpeer review

Taking its point of departure in existing theories of proximities in relation to the transnational flows and reception of audiovisual content, this chapter show how three other types of proximities have influenced the acquisition and reception of Danish television drama in eight territories around the world: Emotional proximities connect individuals at the level of perceived universal affect that transcend cultural differences; cosmopolitan proximities connect individuals with ‘distant others’ through perceptions of stylistic and ethical-political sameness; and grapevine proximities connect individuals in meshes of media industry and personal networks through practices of viva voce “word-of-mouth”. The three all point to the complexity of current perceptions of proximity in transnational audiences and the transnational television industry and, hence, question the assumptions of homophily underlining existing theories of cultural and geo-linguistic proximities.
