FREIRE, João  and  MONTANA R, Emma Cristina. Writing the cultural history of television in Brazil: theoretical and methodological aspects. Signo pensam. [online]. 2006, n.48, pp.23-36. ISSN 0120-4823.

In the first section of this article, I present an international overview of the emergence of television history as an object for academic study. I then examine the theoretical and methodological difficulties faced by researchers, highlighting, though, the main research lines explored since the 90's. In the conclusion, I discuss the purposes and practices of the (scant) Brazilian tv historical studies, and reflect upon my own foray in the field.

Keywords : Television; television studies; television history; theory; methodology.
