Lasers and rainbow-colored fireworks exploding overhead, masses of people dancing, exotic fire-spinning girls in tutus, 10-foot neon butterfly bikes, and some of the best electronic music busting with bass.

I recently spoke with Kate Peirce, School of Journalism and Mass Communication professor, about people’s relationship with television and how television has changed since its debut in 1939. Peirce wrote the dissertation, “The Relationship of Television Viewing, Reading and the Home Environment to Children’s Creativity, Creative Writing and Writing Ability in 1982” as a University of Texas PhD student. Peirce teaches several courses focused on minorities and gender in the media. We had a nice chat about the portrayal of women on television and how it has evolved (or devolved).
