|1.00pm||The Tiger King: What are we watching? – Dr Jorie Lagerway|
|In the best of times, there is so much media content, from TikTok to YouTube, TV, and cinema, that it can be really difficult to find common ground. What shows, memes, films, and apps are worth studying in Film and Media Studies if there doesn’t seem to be a shared set of references? Well, in the worst of times, it seems we’ve all come together around The Tiger King. In this short talk, I’ll introduce you to some of the ways you might study Film and Media at UCD by asking questions like how do we watch, why do we watch, and what on earth does Tiger King tell us about the world in which it takes place.|
|1.30pm||Q & A|
