This collection brings together experts from media and communication studies with postcolonial studies scholars to illustrate how the two fields may challenge and enrich each other. It encompasses essays on topics including media convergence, transcultural subjectivity, hegemony, piracy, and media history and colonialism. Drawing on examples from film, literature, music, TV, and the internet, the contributors investigate the transnational dimensions of today's media, engage with local and global media politics, and discuss media outlets as economic agents, thus illustrating mechanisms of power in postcolonial and neo-colonial mediascapes.
