Subject Area: Media, Culture and Technology

'Global Media: Markets, Flows and Cultures' focuses on the relationship between media and globalisation. We will examine the history of international trade flows in audiovisual goods and services and explore how these have changed through global trends toward regionalisation, counter flow and the increasing transnational production and distribution of media. Newly emerging forms of culture and identity based on the experience of cosmopolitanism, hybridity and diaspora will be examined in detail in relation to media forms such as television formats and drama programs, networked media, film and music.
Students completing this course will receive a thorough grounding in the way media contribute to the intensification of our experience of the world as a whole, which will pave the way for further study in international and transnational media.
