Speaking of Soap Operas

Speaking of Soap Operas
From "Ma Perkins" and "One Man's Family" in the 1930s to "All My Children" in the 1980s, the soap opera has capture the imagination of millions of American men and women of all ages. In Speaking of Soap Operas, Robert Allen undertakes a reexamination of the production and consumption of soap operas through the use of a unique investigatory model based on contemporary poetics and reader-response theory.

Although a considerable amount of research has been conducted on these programs, Allen argues that soap operas remain a phenomenon about which much is said but little is known. Soap operas are different from most other media programming -- they appear formless, refuse to end, require little work on the part of the viewer, and bear no recognizable marks of authorship. For these and other reasons, soap operas resist explanation from both traditional aesthetic and empiricist social science perspectives.

The daytime dramatic serials generate nearly a billion dollars in revenue each year for the three commercial networks. Allen discusses in detail the economic and institutional functions of these programs in addition to the context of their production. He also considers the historical development of the soap opera as advertising vehicle, narrative structure and "women's fiction."

Speaking of Soap Operas is based on the author's own experiences as a soap opera viewer; extensive interviews with soap opera writers, producers, and actors; and the papers of Irna Phillips, creator of dozens of successful ratio and television soap operas. Drawing also upon trade publications, popular periodicals, and broadcast archives, this work is an important contribution to the field of mass communication.

Tenure Blues: A Soap Opera

Tenure Blues: A Soap Opera

Sex, Money, Bad Faith, Laughter, Power Struggles, Betrayal, Politics and even death -- in a law school. Who Knew?

Three bright young professors all vie for promotion and tenure at a law school. Not unusual, except all three have secrets that could threaten their careers as well as their personal lives.

One, a seemingly happily married father of two, is plagued by the fear that his long-ago brief affair with the dean's son will be discovered. Now the dean's son has returned home and threatens to expose him. Another, a single black female, is having a torrid affair with the president of the university board of trustees. Complicating matters is his wife's suspicions, his quest to be the next governor of the state and the dean's son's possible knowledge of his infidelity. The third candidate is a married woman desperately trying to escape her blue collar past. When her long-estranged husband shows up on the scene to threaten trouble, the situation gets complicated, especially since the dean's mean-spirited son begins to torment her about her past. Suddenly, the dean's son winds up dead. Who's to blame?

The Survival of Soap Opera: Transformations for a New Media Era

The Survival of Soap Opera: Transformations for a New Media Era

The soap opera, one of U.S. television's longest-running and most influential formats, is on the brink. Declining ratings have been attributed to an increasing number of women working outside the home and to an intensifying competition for viewers' attention from cable and the Internet. Yet, soaps' influence has expanded, with serial narratives becoming commonplace on most prime time TV programs. "The Survival of Soap Opera" investigates the causes of their dwindling popularity, describes their impact on TV and new media culture, and gleans lessons from their complex history for twenty-first-century media industries.

The book contains contributions from established soap scholars such as Robert C. Allen, Louise Spence, Nancy Baym, and Horace Newcomb, along with essays and interviews by emerging scholars, fans and Web site moderators, and soap opera producers, writers, and actors from ABC's "General Hospital," CBS's "The Young and the Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful," and other shows. This diverse group of voices seeks to intervene in the discussion about the fate of soap operas at a critical juncture, and speaks to longtime soap viewers, television studies scholars, and media professionals alike.
