The Prison-Televisual Complex


Dr Allison Page is a UCD Discovery visiting fellow on her first trip to Ireland from Old Dominion University, Virginia, USA, where she is assistant professor of Communication and Theatre. 

The Prison-Televisual Complex looks at the sudden popularity of reality TV shows set in US prisons, such as the franchise 60 Days In, analysing how and why we have come to have two such unlikely bedfellows - the prison system and the television industry - and what it means for society.

Her seminar takes place on Thursday, February 13th,  Rm C215 of the Newman building, UCD Belfield, 5pm-8pm.
