Explore global media theories, cultures and practices in a highly globalised, digitised and networked world. You will engage with debates on different aspects of global media studies, including globalisation theories, transnational media, networked society, diaspora media, and the global public sphere. You will examine global media and cultural practices, such as international journalism, transnational TV formats and global digital activism, and also explore emerging media and cultural powers beyond the dominant West, including Chinese media ‘going out’, Korean Wave and Japanese pop culture. Completing the unit will help you acquire an up-to-date, critical and complex understanding of global media cultures and practices, which will pave the way for further study and research or to work in the fast-paced world of international media and communication.
