Jonathan B. Kraszewski, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Communication

College of Communication and the Arts


I investigate television and other media through the lenses of production studies and identity studies.

I teach media studies courses at Seton Hall. My research and teaching interests include reality TV, a cultural geography of media, media history, TV genres, media authorship, classic TV, and the mediated construction of identities. My first book, The New Entrepreneurs: An Institutional History of Television Anthology Writers (Wesleyan University Press, 2010), examines a group of American television writers in the 1950s and 1960s who managed their creative visions and political commitments by adapting their scripts for the motion picture, book publishing, and Broadway industries. Right now I’m working on a book titled Reality TV for Routledge. It looks at how reality TV offers a cultural geography of late capitalism.
