  • Asian Video Cultures addresses a glaring omission in contemporary Western film and media scholarship in such a rich and imaginative way that it will give the book lasting significance as a fundamental reference across media studies. Featuring rich, thought-provoking essays and a major, agenda-setting introduction, this is a milestone collection.” — Meaghan Morris, coeditor of, Gender, Media, and Modernity in the Asia-Pacific

  • Description

    The contributors to this volume theorize Asian video cultures in the context of social movements, market economies, and local popular cultures to complicate notions of the Asian experience of global media. Whether discussing video platforms in Japan and Indonesia, Kpop reception videos, amateur music videos circulated via microSD cards in India, or the censorship of Bollywood films in Nigeria, the essays trace the myriad ways Asian video reshapes media politics and aesthetic practices. While many influential commentators overlook, denounce, and trivialize Asian video, the contributors show how it belongs to the shifting core of contemporary global media, thereby moving conversations about Asian media beyond static East-West imaginaries, residual Cold War mentalities, triumphalist declarations about resurgent Asias, and budding jingoisms. In so doing, they write Asia's vibrant media practices into the mainstream of global media and cultural theories while challenging and complicating hegemonic ideas about the global as well as digital media.
