SOSC7350 Global Cultural Industries (3 units)
This course aims to offer a multidisciplinary analysis of "global culture industries"—the increasingly powerful, centralized corporate conglomerates in television, music, advertising, marketing, cinema, social networking, and the like—and their relationship to the political, social and economic changes taking place in countries around the world. It will help the students learn the process of cultural production of various types, especially in the digital age. The course will also provide students opportunities to examine the development of cultural industries in a particular region (such as Asia or the Greater China) via case studies. By doing so it attempts to encourage the students to ponder and explore the effects of globalization on local cultural production, its promise on cultural innovation, and its relationship with cultural homogeneity and heterogeneity.
