"India in a new global media sphere" with Professor of International Communication and founder Co-Director of India Media Centre at the University of Westminster, Daya Thussu, (University of Westminster, London).
When: Wednesday 12 February 2014, 12-1pm
Where: Room D221 in the School of Social Science, City University London.
About the talk:
The dominant strands of research in global media and communication have traditionally privileged a Western, or more accurately, a US-centric framework. However, the globalization of multi-vocal, multi-directional and multi-layered media flows have challenged many established ways of thinking about international media. This, combined with the internationalization of higher education, has contributed to a rethink on research in this field. Focusing on India, this lecture will critique the epistemological limitations of the study of international media and development communication, necessitated in part by the increasing importance of countries such as India in global communication and media discourses and suggest possible paths for future research.
