Globalised Media, Globalised Cultures: Contingency or Coincidence?
Thomas, Amos Owen
AsiaPacific MediaEducator, n9 p6-26 Jul-Dec 2000
Offers a synthesis of media, communications, cultural studies and sociology literature on globalisation that suggests that there is multi-directional causality between media and culture in the process. Suggests that academic theorizing and social policy-making in which global media (particularly television) and local culture are characterized as sole or at least dominant players are wholly inadequate, even defective.
