EP 90: Roseanne & Representations of the Working-Class on Television


Raechel and Melody discuss the controversy surrounding the new Roseanne re-boot, but first contextualize Roseanne as a working-class icon and the history of working-class representation in television. We unpack racial codings of white and non-white representations, the intersection of gender in class representation, and of course revisit Stuart Hall’s encoding/decoding.
