Asia Mediated Lecture Series: The Social Mediascape of Transnational Korean Popular Culture: K-Pop, Digital Games & Animation

The new Korean Wave, referring to the rapid growth of local popular culture and its global penetration, starting in the late 2000s appears to be more intensive in its popularity. The new Korean Wave means the circulation of local popular culture, not only television programs and films but also K-pop and digital games, as well as animation, with the help of social media. The social media-driven new Korean Wave has aptly adjusted to global fans’tastes in both production and consumption as Korean cultural producers have developed their popular culture in tandem with the developments of social media. This presentation will examine the dynamics of globalization and transnationalism, particularly the ways in which the Hallyu phenomenon is integrated into a social media-embedded cultural landscape in North America. The talk will also map out why social media has contributed to the enhanced popularity of the transnational media culture produced in non-Western regions, including Asian contexts.

Speaking Truth to Power in the Era of Fake News & Propaganda: Insights from the Philippines and Southeast Asia

The news media in Southeast Asia, like elsewhere in the world, are being challenged by the dissemination online, especially on social media platforms, of fake news and propaganda. This comes at a time when the news media are facing problems on various fronts, including collapsing revenue models, pressure from media owners, and more draconian restrictions on the right to report and publish. This talk will examine the prospects for truth-telling in polarized and propaganda-rich media environments in Southeast Asia, particularly the Philippines.
