Description - Asian Media Studies by John Nguyet Erni
Asian Media Studies is a volume of original essays that provide new perspectives in Asian media studies. Accounting for a paradigm shift in these studies - from "cultural imperialism" to "globalization" - this book retheorizes Asian media studies to develop a larger context of "critical internationalism" in the field. The unique voices here are from a younger generation of Asian-born scholars of different backgrounds - indigenous, subaltern, diasporic, and others - who make up the 'second wave' of critical Asian media studies. The coverage includes Singapore TV news and advertising, Hong Kong nostalgia, sexuality in Malaysian film, VCD technology, and queer communities in Taiwan. This groundbreaking collection is both an advancement and a hallmark of Asian media studies.
