About the project
Asia Mediated is a transdisciplinary project that investigates the multiple ways that new digital media is restructuring different aspects of society and ultimately shaping the way in which knowledge is constructed and produced. This reshaping of knowledge production is significantly transforming our world, and more than half the users of the internet and social media sites such as Facebook are in Asia. The project specifically studies those new media technologies operating in Asia and uses them to disseminate knowledge about the use of these technologies. New digital media is both the object of research and method for reaching a broader audience.
