Jennifer Clark’s research interests include television history, gender studies, female stardom and celebrity, representations of masculinity and emotion, and the aesthetics of quality television.
She is currently working on articles about the gender politics of masculine ennui in The Sopranos and Mad Men; Queen Elizabeth’s II televised coronation; and early television stardom, with case studies of Gloria Swanson, Gorgeous George, and Gypsy Rose Lee. She is also developing a book that examines the spatial dimensions involved in the relationship between the American Women’s Liberation Movement and television during the 1970s.
