NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk


Cultural capital

From The TV IV
Jump to: navigation, search

Cultural capital refers to the perceived value of a media product. Specific media and genres carry pre-determined associations that create a value in the eyes of the consumer. These associations calculate worth based on time spent and knowledge gained. Film is thought to be more culturally worthwhile than television. The higher a medium's cultural capital, the more acceptable its consumption.
