This course explores debates concerning transnationalism, regionalisation and globalisation in the context of Asia Pacific media systems. You will consider examples of how nations within the Asia Pacific use media to resist cultural homogenization and provide local resistance to the forces of globalisation. Taking as a point of reference the rise of Asian modernities and especially China's recent market liberalisation, the course examines the increasing regional integration of the Asia Pacific through the flows of the media and popular cultural products.
