Growing Up on TV: The TV Family in Primetime

The term “family” probably evokes different images for each of us.  We have all “grown up” in some form of family.   This course will lead us through an examination of how “families” are portrayed on prime time television from the 1950’s to the 21st century.  We will also investigate how the portrayal of TV families may or may not mirror families in society.
