Title Television in the post-broadcast era: The role of old and new media in the formation of national communities - GRAEME TURNER
DESCRIPTION  This research program investigates the role of television in a post-broadcast era increasingly dominated by new media formats such as the Internet. Given the traditional importance of television as a social institution for the democratic state, forming and informing its citizens, the project asks to what extent television will continue to serve such a function and whether new media forms such as online journalism are likely to take its place. As an international program comparing five countries and one multinational single-language market, its outcomes will inform a fundamental rethinking of the socio-cultural relations between the contemporary media and the nation-state.
