Edinburgh Studies in Television offers fresh and original scholarship in television studies, providing excellent models of textual analysis whilst paying particular attention to social issues and/or theoretical debates.

Books in the series pay attention to still neglected analysis of the formal aspects of television (e.g. television performance) and/or draw on recent interest on the experience of audio-visual media (e.g. affect and intimacy).
