Media Transformation in its Australian and International Contexts: Analysis and Theory-building (2013–2015)

Abstract:
This project explores the dynamics of Australian screen media transformation since the introduction of TV in 1956 through an innovative attention to several key moments of disruptive media change. These events will be innovatively examined in terms of (1) the cities in which Australian screen production has occurred, (2) the production spaces¿¿¿particularly studio spaces in which production occurs, (3) creative networks, and (4) the changing relations among screen and other media. Its combination of emerging media studies attentions to media cities, production capabilities and cultures, creative networks and the interface among media, promises new insights into both Australian media and the general nature of media transformation.
