Media Culture And Politics In Indonesia


Media, Culture, and Politics in Indonesia is about the institutions and policies that determine what Indonesians write, read, watch, and hear. It covers the print media, broadcast radio and television, computers and the internet, videos, films and music. This book argues that the texts of the media can be understood in two broad ways: 1. as records of a "national" culture and political hegemony constructed by Suharto's New Order and 2. as contradictory, dissident, political and cultural aspirations that reflect the anxieties and preoccupations of Indonesian citizens. Media, Culture, and Politics, now brought back to life as a member of Equinox Publishing's Classic Indonesia series, explains what has escaped state control, not only by self-conscious resistance, but also because of the ownership patterns, technologies, and modes of consumption of media texts and institutions. The role of the media in the downfall of Suharto is examined and the legacy of his New Order is analyzed. This dynamic and innovative text is suitable for all students of Indonesian languages and culture, Asian studies, Southeast Asian studies, cultural studies, media studies, and contemporary politics. Krishna Sen is Professor of Asian Media and Dean of the Humanities Research Centre at Curtin University of Technology, Perth, Western Australia David T. Hill is Professor of Southeast Asian Studies and Fellow of the Asia Research Centre, Murdoch University, Perth, Western Australia

The Visual Focus Of American Media Culture In The Twentieth Century


This is a sociocultural history of the visually oriented mass media forms that beguiled American society from the 1890s to the end of World War II. The purpose of the work is to show how revolutionary technological advances during these years were instrumental in helping create a unique culture of media-made origins. By focusing on the communal appeal of both traditional and new modes of visual expression as welcome diversions from the harsh realities of life, this book also attends to the American people's affinity for those special individuals whose talent, vision, and lifestyle introduced daring new ways to avoid the ordinariness of life by fantasizing it. Also examined is the sociocultural impact of an ongoing democratization process that through its nurturing of a responsive media culture gradually eroded the polar postures of the elite and mass cultures so that by the mid-1940s signs of a coming postmodern alliance were in the air. Illustrated. Before his retirement Wiley Lee Umphlett served as an administrator/professor at the University of West. Florida for more than twenty-five years.
