Jon Kraszewski is program coordinator for the Visual and Sound Media major. He is author of two books, Reality TV (Routledge, 2017) and The New Entrepreneurs: An Institutional History of Television Anthology Writers (Wesleyan University Press, 2010), as well as numerous articles on television and film. He is particularly interested in media as cultural geography, media and the politics of space, media history, media and identity politics, television studies, and production cultures. He recently started two new research projects-one on the cultural politics of class, race, and gender in the way that pit bull owners are imagined and the other on the way that architectures of play on television game shows engage economic assumptions of selfhood in American culture. Jon teaches media studies courses and enjoys watching his students develop a sense of social justice as they critically engage media.
