Diasporic Media beyond the Diaspora: Korean Media in Vancouver and Los Angeles (Hardback)Sherry Soo Min Yu (author)
- We can order this
Media for diasporic communities have emerged in major cities, such as Vancouver and Los Angeles, and reflect a multicultural, multiethnic, and multilingual reality. But do these media serve their respective communities exclusively, or are they available and accessible to members of greater society at large? Diasporic Media beyond the Diaspora explores structural and institutional challenges and opportunities for these media and suggests policy directions with the aim of fostering broader intercultural dialogue. Using case studies of Korean media in Vancouver and Los Angeles, Sherry Yu examines the potential of an intercultural media system for culturally, ethnically, and linguistically diverse societies. This is the first book to explore the potential of diasporic communicative spaces as being open to people outside of specific diasporic communities, and their further potential to establish an infrastructure that facilitates conversation and contributes to building an interculturally engaging and inclusive media system.
