Welcome to SIS 640 International Communication

Greetings everyone!

Once everyone gets assigned to a class group - please build your blog and let me know its name and URL. I will then post that URL to the blog list on the right. The Tuesday night class is section 1 and Thursday is section 2.

I will also periodically post random information on this blog - though most announcements will come via email through Blackboard.

Looking forward to a great semester!

Analysis Question 2

Here's another question:

As journalism faces difficulty in a time of global economic crisis, should nation-states think seriously about revising the global governance of media systems? We know that some markets have exploded into many different channel offerings, even while media conglomeration continues to accelerate. Given what we know about the role of media in culture and conflict, is it time to revisit the older concerns about media ownership and rights of information and communication as discussed in the previous readings?

Please provide a short answer to this question by Saturday, 5pm.

Analysis Question #1

If you choose to answer, please respond by Monday, Sept 14, on your group blog site.

The question is relatively straightforward - do you think the "political-economy" concerns that have driven much of the debate in IC research over the past decades are still relevant? If so, why?
Or, do you think that other kinds of questions should be the focus of researchers and policy-makers?
