‘I Don't Think We Thought about It as Studying Soap Operas’: Christine Geraghty
This chapter discusses an interview with Christine Geraghty about her research on soap opera in Great Britain. It provides information on Geraghty's family and educational background. Her work outlines the characteristics of the genre, focusing on narrative and characterization while at the same time giving special attention to the role of gossip both inside and outside the text. This chapter suggests that from the start, Geraghty felt a desire and an obligation to address non-specialists and non-academics in both her writing and speaking.
