Course Description: This course critically introduces various issues of media and journalism in light of the development of globalization and multicultural situations. How have media been incorporated into our experiences of place and culture? How do we understand our media consumption, and our dwelling and traveling experiences, and how would such an understanding help us make sense of the increasingly globalizing world in which we live? This course explores the role the media play in deterritorialized, global and multicultural contexts. It first introduces two key approaches to media globalization - cultural imperialism paradigm and cultural globalization thesis - and considers how the production, circulation and consumption of global entertainment media have shaped the ways we understand both domestic and foreign cultures. It then examines a range of contemporary cultural phenomena - cultural migrants, diaspora, media representation of minority - and considers how such phenomena are concerned with critical issues in relation to globalization, identity formation and the shaping of our sense of place. A range of media texts (e.g. movies, television programs) serve as exemplars to be analyzed in the lecture and discussion.
