Beschreibung:

This volume provides an overview of the rapidly changing landscape of global television, combining previously published essays by pioneers of the study of television with contemporary work by scholars who have refined and extended intellectual debates in the field. Organized thematically, it explores such issues as cultural imperialism, nationalism, postcolonialism, transnationalism, ethnicity and cultural hybridity. These themes are illuminated by concrete examples and case studies derived from empirical work on global television industries, programmes and audiences in diverse social, historical and cultural contexts. Developing a critical framework for exploring the political, economic, sociological and technological dimensions of television cultures, and countering the assumption that global television is merely a result of the contemporary dominance of the West in world affairs, the book demonstrates that the global dimensions of television were imangined into existence very early on in its contentious history. It assembles the critcal moments in television's past in order to understand its present and future.
