Narrative Technologies: Representing Digital Labor on American Television

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

"This paper analyzes the challenges digital technologies present for the visual and
narrative conventions of contemporary television drama. The narrative resistance
of the stationary body of the computer-user could only be overcome by intercutting
between physical and virtual space. But, with the advent of mobile phones and wireless
computing, contemporary action dramas are now set in an “augmented reality.” I argue
that the incorporation of these new technologies necessarily displaces narrative agency
from an autonomous protagonist to a heterogeneous assemblage of the technological and
human actors in the narrative as well as the shifting norms of racial-ethnic representation
and conventions of visual style and narrative structure governing the construction of
that narrative. This shift in a genre that collapses individual/national identity offers
insight into how new technologies of work destabilize hegemonic racial-ethnic logics of
American identity that still place white masculinity at the heart of the American national
narrative.
