What is the structure and political economy of global media
(broadcast, print, satellite) and how has it changed historically
(especially through technological change)? How is global media
organized - as TNCs, states, regional organizations or international
bodies - and in whose interest? What are the cultural impacts of
global media? Is there a global culture and if so, is this imposed
(cultural imperialism) or hybridsed ("global village")? How does
globalization benefit? Why (and
how) are there anti-globalization movements?
