This subject focuses on the emergence of cultural studies as a distinct disciplinary formation in Asia over the past twenty years, and introduces students to this new field's key approaches to the analysis of contemporary cultures. It introduces recent work on intra-Asian cultural flows, colonial histories, postcoloniality, neo-colonialism and cultural globalisation in the Asian region, and explores cultural studies' engagement with emergent Asian public cultures. Students will learn about current approaches to sites and practices including television drama, popular and new-wave cinemas, new social movements, popular music and urban space across locations that may include South Korea, China, Taiwan, Japan, Philippines, Singapore and India. On completion of this subject students should have an understanding of the major directions in cultural studies scholarship in Asia today.
