This unit introduces approaches for studying changes in a variety of contemporary forms of communication in their cultural and social contexts. As diverse media converge in the digital environment, content in film, television, video, the Internet and mobile communication is produced and distributed in new ways, often across traditional boundaries. Taking examples from everyday life, the unit provides key concepts for thinking about media convergence and issues of globalisation. Examples may include changes in film and television genres, news and journalism, reality television, celebrity culture, and ideas of cultural and personal identity.
