Postcolonial Studies Meets Media Studies : A Critical Encounter, Paperback / softback Book

Postcolonial Studies Meets Media Studies : A Critical Encounter Paperback / softback

Edited by Kai Merten, Lucia Kramer



This book brings together experts from Media and Communication Studies with Post-Colonial Studies scholars to illustrate how the two fields may challenge and enrich each other.

Its essays introduce readers to selected topics including 'Media Convergence', 'Transcultural Subjectivity', 'Hegemony', 'Piracy' and 'Media History and Colonialism'.

Drawing on examples from film, literature, music, TV and the internet, the contributors investigate the transnational dimensions in today's media, engage with local and global media politics and discuss media outlets as economic agents, thus illustrating mechanisms of power in post-colonial and neo-colonial mediascapes.
