Meeting Description:

The Media Panel of the “World without Walls: East and West” Conference organized by the Oriental Society of Australia is pleased to announce a call for papers under the theme of 'Asian Media in Transition.'

The Media Panel of the International OSA Conference is pleased to announce a call for papers under the theme of 'Asian Media in Transition.' The Panel consists of four sub-panels, as shown below. If you wish to contribute to any one of the sub-panels, please visit the OSA Conference homepage <http://www.arts.usyd.edu.au/conference/OSA2006/>, download the OSA proposal form, and send a 200-word abstract together with the form to arts.usyd.edu.au>. The deadline for abstract submission is 31 July 2006. The OSA conference committee plans to produce a refereed publication from the outcomes of the conference. For registration details, please visit the OSA homepage.

Sub-Panel 1. New/On-line media (Chair: Ki Sung Kwak)
The emergence of the new/online media (particularly the Internet) is driven by digital technologies, transforming not only the media landscape and media regulations, but the way people communicate. Potential papers can address issues surrounding the role of new/online media in the context of economic, political, social and/or technological development in Asia.

Sub-Panel 2. Media-State Relations (Chair: Ki Sung Kwak)
Potential papers may discuss the changing relationship between the state and the mass media in any countries in Asia where they have achieved or are achieving (partial) democracy.

Sub-Panel 3. Media Discourse and Society (Chair: Keizo Nanri)
This session welcomes contributions on the relationship between media discourse and society in Asia from a discursive perspective. Questions addressed might include: How do media discourses function in society and what have they achieved? Do media discourses maintain the status quo, and if so, how? Have media discourses acted as protagonists (or antagonists) in a society, and if so, how and why? Have media discourses changed a society? What contribution to society can media discourses make?

Sub-Panel 4. Media and Popular culture (Chair: Ian McArthur and Seiko Yasumoto)
Potential papers may discuss issues related to popular culture in the media. What do the messages conveyed in television drama, animation, and manga signify? This section has scope for discussing localization and globalization in mass media. How does the relationship between local reality and transnational considerations impact on media content? How does popular culture facilitate intertextual borrowing within Asia, or between Asia and other regions?

For further details on the 'Asian Media in Transition' panel, please contact us at arts.usyd.edu.au> and cc to arts.usyd.edu.au>
