Things I want to see more papers on next year

hollyoaksIn an attempt to add content to my blog I was going to post some links to academic articles on Christmas (particularly Media Studies related things).  But apparently there’s not much out there, adding to the growing list of things I would like to see more papers on in order to inform my teaching/research or just satisfy my random curiosities but don’t have time to write myself, thank you very much (if you write on these I will love you, or if you know of stuff, please post in comments – some of these topics have a few articles and chapters that I’ve come across, but none are exactly saturating the academic market):

  • Christmas, especially Christmas specials or singles or that kind of thing.
  • Hollyoaks
  • Susan Boyle
  • Whatsapp and/or snapchat
  • British TV game shows of the 21st Century that are not reality TV or Millionaire
  • BBCs Three and Four, ITVs two, three and four
  • Yours magazine
  • Spotted communities
  • Made in Chelsea
  • Great British… programmes (Bake Off, Sewing Bee, Menu etc)
  • The i newspaper
  • Comic Relief/Sport Relief and/or Children in Need
  • The Simpsons: Tapped Out
  • Whether or not the hashtags used in product ads get any traffic that isn’t a) sarcastic b) generated by the company and its employees/marketers

Thanks in advance!  Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
