Lynn Spigel is Professor of Radio, Television, and Film at Northwestern University. She is the author of "Make Room for TV: Television and the Family Ideal in Postwar America."


"Spigel possesses one of the few indispensable voices in American cultural studies. She sees the complexity of popular culture where others have tended to see formula and repetition. This is a perfect anthology, one that reflects the intellectual growth of an important thinker and at the same time represents a coherent argument about an important topic."- Henry Jenkins, author of From Barbie to Mortal Combat "Lynn Spigel's Welcome to the Dream House is quite simply superb. It is original, impeccably researched, dazzlingly intelligent, and prickling with humor."- Julie D'Acci, author of Defining Women: Television and the Case of Cagney and Lacey
