The Pandemic has operated a monumental shift in media production and consumption. Screen time increased and streaming services subscriptions boomed as theaters closed and movie projects were shelved or put on hiatus. While film and television series production did not stop, it certainly adapted to both new industrial rules and viewer moods and psychological needs. This seminar seeks to explore pandemic streaming from an affect theory perspective. Possible topics could include:
  • How television series adapted to the pandemic

  • How viewing habits changed throughout the pandemic

  • Lockdowns, viewing habit and tastes

  • Audience response to pandemic-themed content

  • Marketing changes and adaptations

  • Specific affects (boredom, grief)
