What Is Television?

Categories: Project Overviews, Support Material
Date: 1 January 2005

Ten years from now, how might we answer this question?  What technological, legal, psychological and sociological factors would we need to understand?  Interweaving several ‘knowledge domains’, what might we learn not only about television but also about our ‘knowledge economy’ and ‘creative industries’?

The application prepares ‘scenario planning’ exercises for an ARC Linkage Grant that would bring together key planners and program-makers from industry, government and education, at state, federal and international levels.

We will establish track record and form a ‘common language’ of cross-disciplinary investigation and speculation.  It is true ‘linkage research’ – intensive and extensive.
