Saga’s Story: Emotional Engagement in the Production and Reception of The Bridge
Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceeding › Book chapter
This research examines emotional engagement with Nordic crime drama The Bridge, using a cultural approach to genre, affect and emotion, and exploring how executive and creative producers, artistic performers, and audiences all perform specific practices that culminate in the co-production of intense engagement with this crime drama. The fieldwork took place during 2013-2016, with 40 production interviews and 170 audience interviews and participant observations in Sweden, Denmark, and Great Britain. A key research question concerns how genre, affect and emotion are interwoven in the fine details of the production of this crime drama and audience engagement with it.
