Transnational Media Flows

  • Course Number: MCC-GE 2167
  • Hours: 40
  • Units: 4
  • Description: Analyzes the global flow of media products, in particular the circulation of television & film in transnational contexts, at the intersection of political economy (economic, business, & institutional frameworks) with cultural economy (the cultural meanings of these television & film products). Focuses on case studies of the supranational regional players in some of the most important geo-linguistic world markets, where the tensions between global/transnational media flows & local interests are most evident, engaging with theoretical positions ranging from critiques of the homogenizing effects of globalization to those that affirm the changing power relations of counter-flows based on audience preferences.
