Introduction to Popular Culture Studies

Thinking Transnationally PT. 2

While finishing this book, I am amazed by the way media is constantly spread and moved not only in the US but also to other countries. The book really makes a full circle of each aspect of media as well as what makes it spread, the paths it takes to reach the most viewers, and how it can reach a whole other country that is different than where it was started.

The final points about different countries was something that I had not thought of much. I knew it was possible for media to be spread in long distance ways, but there really is an interesting point that the different cultures are spread and other cultures are able to see the way people are using media in other parts of the world. Even though it is more difficult to spread media between further distances, it is still do-able. It happens everyday. In world news, something that happens very quickly is spread all around the world to let others know what is happening. ISIS was an example of this, as whenever something happens, you can flip on the television and within minutes there is a whole news story about it.

Although something is happening a far way away, news and media are both still able to be used to get information out. This book does a nice job of dissecting each topic and helping you understand the bigger picture of media.
