Conversations About Our World Talk Series: Changing Geopolitics of Global Communication in a Post-Covid World

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 at 6:00pm to 6:45pm

Virtual Event

Countries such as China, Russia, and India have contributed to the transformation of the global media and communication landscape, challenging the analytical frameworks of communication studies, which remain deeply embedded within a Western discourse. In a post-COVID multi-polar world, global communication studies may have to broaden its remit. This is especially true with digital communication at a time when global cyberspace is rapidly changing and digital connectivity brings once marginal populations onto the policy discourse, not as aid receivers but as active consumers and producers.
