Why is it important to see yourself on television? Why is television an important subject for scholarly study and how does what we watch shape the world we live in?

It’s important to see yourself represented on television because it helps both you and other see that we are all part of the same society, all equally worthy of having that representation. Seeing ourselves in this way, achieving great goals, even inĀ  a fictional universe, helps us to believe that these things are possible – which in turn helps us to actually make these things possible.
