Jakob Isak Nielsen - Lecturer

The lecture focused on the characteristics of the on-going Golden Age of American drama series (initiated by HBO in the late 90s). In what ways did HBO series like The Sopranos and The Wire change the landscape of American drama series? How can we best assess the generative mechanisms that brought it into being and how do we place new players such as Netflix and Amazon within the aesthetic and competitive landscape? The chief argument is that the phenomenon is best explained by considering the intersection of audiovisual aesthetics (e.g. choices pertaining to style and narrative design) and media systemic conditions, e.g. the legislative frame work, market dynamics as well as shifting modes of production and business models.
