DESCRIPTION

How have recent economic and political transformations in Indonesia manifested themselves in the mass media? In what ways have the forces of globalisation and Westernisation influenced change in the style and content of Indonesian media genres? How much is everyday life in Indonesia reflected and shaped by the Indonesian media? This unit examines these questions in reference to a variety of media genres. It also explores the ways in which the Indonesian media is shaped by class, gender, consumerism, rural-urban differences, contending state and political ideologies, and the ongoing quest to develop a national cultural identity. The unit focuses particular attention on the increasing commercialisation of the Indonesian media, and on the many ways in which Indonesian society and culture is being transformed through the rapid developments in media and communications technology.
