What do we make of the contemporary media in Asia? This panel looks at case studies that have captured the attention of media outlets and through popular culture in Indonesia, South Korea, Thailand and China. After the presentations, we will brainstorm with the audience: Can we identify certain trends of in all of these cases? Are all societies really looking for sensationalism and scandal from their media? Or is there an argument for a distinct national media in these example - do they stand alone as distinctively 'Indonesian', 'Korean', 'Thai' or 'Chinese'? Panel presentation will be 20 minutes each, followed by 40 minutes of Q&A and discussion.
ANU Asia Pacific Week will bring leading experts on the Asia Pacific region together with 100 delegates from around the world to engage in a series of dynamic discussions and events focused on developments and trends that will shape the ‘Asia Pacific Century’.
