About Laura Brown


Hopewell, New Jersey

Research Interests Summary:

My studies focus on television’s place in American history: how and why programs were made, why some shows were more popular than others, and the greater impact television has had on society and culture (and vice versa). I am also interested in broadcast network history, the place of music on television, fan studies, and cross-platform media.

Laura presented her research at the Northeast Popular/American Culture Association’s (NEPCA) fall 2017 conference. Read more about it here.
