US Network Series
Edited by Claire Cornillon, Sarah Hatchuel and Dennis Tredy

This open issue is a continuation of a series of scientific events that had been organized since 2016 (a seminar from 2016 to 2018 and symposiums in 2018, 2019 and 2020), all of which were intended to develop research on US Network television series. The aim is to highlight works that have often been overlooked by scholarly research or only discussed in terms of their methodological approaches, and to contribute to a re-historicization of the study of television series by not only focusing on contemporary shows but also rethinking how network programming has evolved since the 1950s. In addition to the historical importance of networks in the development of television series and their impact in both economic and sociological terms, this topic invites us to reflect on the aesthetic, narrative, media-based, ideological, political and cultural aspects of these series.

Rethinking Academic Disciplines with TV Series : An Epistemological Perspective
Edited by Claire Cornillon, Monica Michlin and Sandrine Sorlin

This issue of TV/Series seeks to analyze TV series from an epistemological perspective, thus reversing our usual disciplinary lens. While an increasing number of researchers in literature, the arts, social sciences and the humanities more generally have seen in television series new fields to explore, and have brought to the object their methodological perspective and the conceptual tools of their respective disciplines, this issue studies the “return effect” of the object on the discipline, asking whether the study of TV series allows researchers to rethink their academic discipline itself. Have TV series catalyzed new concepts, opened up new horizons, allowed forms of analysis that would have been more difficult to envision, or that might even have remained unthinkable without them? What do TV series “do” to academic disciplines?
