Topic 1

  1. What would TV be like had it developed as a movie theater technology?

Topic 2

  1. How does this early advertisement for television
    reinscribe traditional gender roles? According to Spigel, why might this
    have been perceived as necessary?
  2. View these TV ads from 1920s to 1950s. Consider
    how they were intended to persuade Americans to adopt television as a
    home technology in part by assuaging anxieties that TV would radically
    alter home life (including traditional familial and gendered roles) and
    in part by selling an image of mobility and worldliness that would be
    accessible without ever having to leave one’s home. How do these ads
    attempt to strike this balance?
