Transnational Spaces and Networks (INGS2601)


This unit examines communication, culture, media and politics in a globalised world. Focusing on the core concept of representation, we consider how the politics of place, space, language and ethnicity shape international relations, and how gendered and queered perspectives change our understandings of those relations. We ask: who are "global actors" and how, through their (self)-representations, do they shape relationships in the transnational public sphere?
