Abstract:The issue emerged from the work presented at a conference on television and intimacy held at the University of Cape Town in 2015. This conference took television's association with intimacy as its theme, and used the complexity of the South African context as an opportunity to question the association between television and warm, cosy effects such as comfort and intimacy. Contributions: Intimacy, identity and home: 40 years of South African television (Alexia Smit); Negotiating difference, imagining intimacy: the role of 'intermediate' racial masculinity in 'Egoli: Place of Gold' (Francois Jonker); Ignorance-making in '7de Laan': a critical whiteness studies perspective (Hannelie Marx Knoetze); Animating a South African identity? The case of 'Urbo: The Adventures of Pax Afrika' (SABC 2006-2009) (Adam de Beer); Reading South African bridal television: consumption, fantasy and judgement (Alexia Smit); It's 50/50? ... The township home as a context of viewing (Mvuzo Ponono & Herman Wasserman); The empty space of fragmented intimacies on Khumbul'ekhaya (Nyasha Mboti). [ASC Leiden abstract]
