Abstract

This chapter explores entanglements of gender and geopolitics in television drama in relation to the emergence of new forms of narrative complexity in the genre, the securitization of the post-9/11 world and the processes of media convergence that facilitate and invite intense forms of audience participation. We examine these dynamics through a detailed analysis of the character of Carrie Mathieson in Homeland and of audience engagements with her. We argue that in the narrative logic of Homeland, good/bad foreign policy and good/bad mothering constitute overlapping realms of knowledge and judgement that defy practical, political, ethical and epistemological differentiation.
