This unit introduces approaches for studying changes in a variety of contemporary forms of communication. As diverse media converge in the digital environment, content in film, television, video, the Internet and mobile communication is made 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 the implications of globalisation. Examples may include changes in film and television drama, news and journalism, reality television, celebrity and ideas of personal identity.
