CultureKlatsch, a production of the English and Philosophy Departments at the University of Colorado Denver, extends our conversations about contemporary culture by sharing nuanced, perceptive, philosophical commentary on the content and issues that matter most. The conversations happening on social media and streaming platforms have the ability to point our cultural lenses in a thousand different directions. CultureKlatsch examines the media that are most relevant to the current cultural moment and most likely to emerge in our everyday discussions with friends. We’ll recreate the spontaneous and philosophical conversations that happen in coffee shops while delving deeply into what topical books, television, and movies have to tell us about who we are and what we care most about.

    Ep 11 - Targaryens, Television, and Trauma: Watching George R. R. Martin’s House of the Dragon

    This episode of CultureKlatsch discusses House of the Dragon (the Golden Globe winning prequel to Game of Thrones) in terms of spectatorship and genre. Host Jake Johnson, along with guests Kendall Adamson, Madison Cook, David Debonis, and Landon Sickler (all CU Denver students), create a roundtable discussion on a wide range of topics, including television consumption patterns and rituals, violence against women as a plot device, trauma and spectatorship, the cultural appeal of high fantasy television, the ways HOD mirrors current social relations, the politics of gender and colonialism, artistic intent and HOD as historical account, and the ongoing celebration of “masculine strength” in both GOT and HOD. They speak with several CU Denver professors—Dr. Sarah Hagelin (Ethnic Studies and English), Katy Mohrman (Ethnic Studies), and William Wagner (History)—as well as CU Denver film student Darcen McCampbel and spectators outside the university, Beth Hall and Allie Borgsmiller.
