Why study the media in Asia? Today the political, socio-economic and cultural forces by which the media operate are rapidly globalizing in Asia, and the emerging consequences deserve to be analyzed and explored fully. Since the 1990s the new borderless media have penetrated the emerging markets of Asia, capturing the imaginations of people who were accustomed to the traditional domestic media under government control. This course provides a critical understanding of the place of the media in different Asian locations.
