Media, by nature, are global. The circulation of media across borders and the technologies that support international communication have long been tied to trends in globalization. As national borders and identities are subverted by transnational and postnational economic and political imperatives, the specificity of place can become blurred and incoherent.  But just as media can contribute to the erasure of distance, they can also reveal deep expressions of culture, identity, and place. The Carsey-Wolf Center’s research in global media is attuned to these tensions and committed to exploring the ways in which media can express culture and change our world.
