New media encompass a wide range of communication technologies such as the Internet, blogs, online videogames, mobile telephony, and social networking sites. The early phase of new media research was dominated by studies and theorization from North America and Europe. Over the past decade, many countries in Asia have also observed the rapid diffusion of new technologies and their rising impacts in virtually every aspect of everyday life as in politics, governance, economics, education, entertainment, and recreation. Against this backdrop, this course aims to understand the social, political, and cultural implications of new media in Asia.
