MECO3605 - Media Globalisation
Semester 2, 2014 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Benedetta Brevini
Phone: +61 2 9351 4734
This unit aims to demonstrate the complexity of media globalisation and to examine in depth some of the common assumptions associated with the term. While the unit will consider the impact of global market forces (i.e. cheap labour in developing countries, environmental issues, etc), it is interested in the dynamics of globalisation more generally, and media globalisation more specifically. Students can expect to appreciate that media globalisation is a complex proposal that involves formats, localisation, symbolic currency and negotiation.
