>Conference Theme
>The debate over 'media/cultural imperialism' of 
>the west has become complicated in the last two 
>decades by the emergence of media technologies 
>which allow messages and images, on the one 
>hand, to be instantly broadcast across the 
>globe; and on the other, to be produced 
>relatively cheaply for narrow-casting to 
>sub-national groups both within and across 
>national boundaries.  If the 20th century was 
>the era of the nation being imagined in print 
>and broadcast media, then in the 21st century 
>that imagination maybe under challenge by new 
>technologies that enable the imagination of new 
>politico-cultural topographies.  The purpose of 
>this conference is to address the shape of 
>national, local, ethnicised and gendered 
>identities being formulated by and in the media 
>in Asia in the 21st century.
