Since the late 1990s South Korea has emerged as a new center for the production of transnational popular culture - the first instance of a major global circulation of Korean popular culture in history. Why popular (or not)? Why now? What does it mean socially, culturally and politically in a global context? This edited collection considers the Korean Wave in a global digital age and addresses the social, cultural and political implications in their complexity and paradox within the contexts of global inequalities and uneven power structures. The emerging consequences at multiple levels - both macro structures and micro processes that influence media production, distribution, representation and consumption - deserve to be analyzed and explored fully in an increasingly global media environment. This book argues for the Korean Wave's double capacity in the creation of new and complex spaces of identity that are both enabling and disabling cultural diversity in a digital cosmopolitan world. The Korean Wave combines theoretical perspectives with grounded case studies in an up-to-date and accessible volume ideal for both undergraduate and postgraduate students of Media and Communications, Cultural Studies, Korean Studies and Asian Studies.

As part of its ‘going out’ strategy, China is using the media to promote its views and vision to the wider world and to counter negative images in the US-dominated international media. China’s Media Go Global, the first edited collection on this subject, evaluates how the unprecedented expansion of Chinese media and communications is changing the global media landscape and the role of China within it. Each chapter examines a different dimension of Chinese media’s globalization, from newspapers, radio, film and television, to social media and journalism. Topics include the rise of Chinese news networks, China Daily as an instrument of China’s public diplomacy and the discussion around the growth of China’s state media in Africa. Other chapters discuss entertainment television, financial media and the advertising market in China. Together, this collection of essays offers a comprehensive evaluation of complex debates concerning the impact of China on the international media landscape, and makes a distinctive addition to Chinese media studies, as well as to broader global media discourses. Beyond its primary readership among academics and students, China’s Media Go Global is aimed at the growing constituency of general readers, for whom the role of the media in globalization is of wider interest.

Contemporary BRICS Journalism: Non-Western Media in Transition is the first comparative study of professional journalists working in BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa). The book presents a range of insider perspectives, offering a valuable insight into the nature of journalism in these influential economies. Contributors to this volume have conducted in-depth interviews with more than 700 journalists, from mainstream and online media, between 2012 and 2015. They present and analyse their findings here, revealing how BRICS journalism is envisioned, experienced, and practised in the twenty-first century. Compelling evidence in the form of journalists’ narratives reveals the impact of digital culture on modern reporting and the evolving dynamic between new media technology and traditional journalistic practice. Insightful comparisons are made between BRICS countries, highlighting the similarities and differences between them. Topics covered include; professionalism, ethics and ideals, community journalism, technological developments in the newsroom and the reporting of protest movements. This book’s ambitious analysis of journalistic landscapes across these non-Western nations will significantly broaden the scope of study and research in the field of journalism for students and teachers of communication, journalism, and media studies.

This book explores the transnational mobility, everyday life and digital media use of childcare workers living and working abroad. Focusing specifically on Filipina, Indonesian, and Sri Lankan nannies in Europe, it offers insights as to the causes and implications of women’s mobility, using data drawn from ethnographic research examining transnational migration, work experiences, family, and relationships. While drawing attention to the hidden, largely invisible and marginalized lives of these women, this research reveals the ways in which digital media, especially the use of mobile phones and the Internet, empower them but also continue to reinforce existing power relations and inequalities. Drawing on a wide range of perspectives from media and communications, sociology, cultural studies and anthropology, the book combines theoretical perspectives with grounded case studies.

Wer beherrscht unsere Köpfe und warum? – Eine faszinierende Expedition zu den Mächtigen des Kulturbetriebs Avatar, Stieg Larsson, Google, Michael Jackson – wie funktioniert die Kultur der Massen und wer macht sie? Was gefällt allen, überall auf der Welt? Und warum? Es geht in diesem Report über die weltweite Kulturindustrie um ein Billionengeschäft. Es geht aber auch um die Herrschaft über Worte, Bilder, Träume und Weltanschauungen. Fünf Jahre reiste der Medienforscher Frédéric Martel auf allen Kontinenten, befragte in 1250 Interviews die Mitwirkenden der Kreativindustrien von 30 Ländern. Auf der Suche nach Gewinnern und Verlierern begleitet ihn der Leser in die Kapitalen des Entertainment, nach Hollywood und Bollywood, zu TV Globo nach Brasilien, zu Sony, Al Jazeera, Televisa, in ägyptische Multiplexkinos, die Kleinstädten gleichen, zu Kellnern in L.A., aus denen Weltstars wurden, und zu Julliard-School-Absolventen, die kellnern. Noch beherrscht Amerika den globalen Markt, doch deutlich dringt aus den Medienkonzernen in Mumbai, Shanghai, Seoul, Rio und Dubai der Schlachtruf: »Wir haben ein Milliardenpublikum, wir haben Geld, wir werden es Hollywood zeigen.« Dagegen spielen europäische Filme, Bücher, Musik eine immer geringere Rolle, da wir in Europa unsere elitäre Position, die auf Massenkultur hinunterschaut, nicht aufgeben wollen. Wir brauchen uns daher nicht zu wundern, wenn wir den Krieg um Werte, Bilder und die Inhalte in den Köpfen der Menschen verlieren. Provozierende These: Will Europa ein internationaler Player sein, braucht es mehr Mainstream.
