BIO

Jan Van den Bulck is interested in involuntary and incidental media effects. He has studied how the entertainment media in general, and fiction in particular, affect perception of the real world. Much of his work in this area has been tied to cultivation theory. He is particularly interested in how TV viewing affects knowledge of violence and the world of law enforcement, and of health and the world of emergency medicine.
