This unit aims to explore the relationship between mass media and social, economic and political transformations in Indonesia. The unit examines this relationship in reference to a variety of media genres, extending from the Dutch colonial era to the contemporary era. It also explores the ways in which the Indonesian media is shaped by colonialism, globalisation, class, gender, consumerism, rural-urban differences, dominant state and political ideologies, and the ongoing quest to develop a national cultural identity. The unit focuses particular attention on the increasing commercialisation of the Indonesian media, and on the many ways in which Indonesian society and culture is being transformed through the rapid developments in media and communications technology.
