This subject aims to introduce students to the impact of globalisation on media organisations, media practices and media audiences. Students will be introduced to the social, economic, political and cultural shifts taking place both locally and internationally. The subject will chart the history of globalisation, and will cover the major contemporary debates, concepts and theorists. Students will be introduced to the issues surrounding globalisation primarily via a series of case studies which will illustrate the emerging pattern of the new communication networks.
