Description

This subject explores how contemporary media industries have been shaped by digital technologies and transnational media flows, with a focus on social, economic and political transformations. The subject offers a critical overview of media use, distribution and production through Internet platforms and introduces students to contemporary scholarly analyses of technological innovations, media geographies and audiences. The subject directly engages students with a range of industry problems that have emerged due to the rapid pace of transformation across digital media industries. Students explore the impact of digital media in transforming legacy industries and in catalysing the emergence of radically new industries. Students gain a critical understanding of cutting-edge transformations across multiple sectors, from entertainment to social media, from government to commerce, and develop greater capacities for intercultural professional practice in their future careers through engagement with a diversity of case studies both within and outside Australia.
