This selective, three-day symposium takes place between Jan. 17-19, 2020 and features screenings, panels, and Q&As with film and television industry leaders.

Film Studies Faculty Elana Levine’s upcoming book, ‘Her Stories: Daytime Soap Opera & US Television History,’ will be published by Duke University Press and released in March, 2020.

In Her Stories, Elana Levine draws on archival research and her experience as a longtime soap fan to provide an in-depth history of the daytime television soap opera as a uniquely gendered cultural form and a central force in the economic and social influence of network television.
