Global Entertainment Media

Presented by: Lee Artz, Professor of Media Studies

Back to Friday U by popular acclaim, Dr. Lee Artz will examine the globalization of media with a particular focus on film, anime, and television genres. The “idol” phenomena may have started in the U.S. but it is not unique to America. See and appreciate the worlds of Bollywood, Chollywood, and Hollywood. You’ll glimpse reality television and game shows from Brazil and Mexico to Japan and South Korea, and discuss the cultural diversity in global media. We’ve come a long way since Uncle Miltie!
