Rethinking Trans-Asia Media Flows from Australia: International Symposium
Monash University and The University of Melbourne with funding from The Australian Research Council is delighted to present:
Rethinking Trans-Asia Media Flows from Australia: An International Symposium
Although it has long been considered a non-Asian country located in Asia, Australia is increasingly linked into Asian media circuits, and the rise of the Asian media industries is changing Australian media culture. At the level of consumption, Asian media content-from Bollywood film to Japanese TV to Chinese online video to Korean social media and K-pop---is now more readily accessible than ever to media users in Australia due to broadband connectivity and mobile media technologies, as well as (more unevenly) via mainstream commercial distribution. This increased access is not only helping Australia's Asian migrant populations maintain cultural ties; it is also creating new media tastes for the general Australian audience. Meanwhile, at the level of production, Australian governments, keen to harness the potential for the country's involvement in the region's expanding media industries, are exploring new ways to support Australia's screen media industries by establishing regional partnerships. To what extent are these intensifying media flows transforming the cultural identities of Australian audiences and media products? And how does such consideration in and from Australia enrich the study of trans-Asian media and cultural flows? This two-day international symposium will explore these and related questions.
