This unit examines globalisation from a cultural perspective, highlighting the roles that media technologies have played and continue to play around the world. Students are introduced to major models of globalisation and then examine how changes in technology have enabled and enhanced the production and distribution of cultural and communicational goods and services on a global scale. The unit complements its focus on media cultures with an examination of the ways in which 'global' ideas are produced and used at 'local' levels, with particular emphasis on instances of 'counter-global cultures' and some of the techniques through which they have been created.
