Transnational Media Flows
This class examines the intersecting dynamics of media genres & geo-linguistic cultural markets in the configuration of global & regional media flows. It looks in particular at the way media genres travel & how their circulation raises issues about the cultural power of certain media narratives in specific historical, political & social conditions of consumption. We will examine the battle for national, regional, & global media markets as a struggle for the ‘legitimate’ cultural & political view of the world expressed through information (news), scientific discourse (documentaries), & popular culture (films, tele novels, reality television, music) to understand the complex global flow of television programs & films.
