[Commlist] GMD / Vol 2 No 2: Media, Culture and Society in Africa and Asia. Part 1. Nigeria

Sat Jun 27 09:58:48 GMT 2020

Galactica Media Editorial Board is pleased to announce that Vol 2 No 2: Media, Culture and Society in Africa and Asia. Part 1. Nigeria is available on the Journal website.

This experimental issue was planned as an attempt to start a big project consisting of several special issues analyzing media and communication problems in the regions of Africa and Asia. It so happened that in the process of working on the first issue we faced a certain dilemma: to make the whole issue on Africa, or to focus our attention on one country. As a result, the choice was made for Nigeria. To be more exact, our editors have convinced us that such an issue should start with Nigeria, because in this country, as a certain optical instrument, many problems typical for other African countries have been reflected. We hope that this attempt will serve as a starting point for other special issues in which similar problems in other regions will be discussed. At least this year, we intend to make another issue, but already on Asia.

This issue presents contemporary debates on topics raised in media, cultural and social studies in Africa's ever-changing mediascape. The authors critically analysed current theoretical advances in communication, culture and society; evaluated theoretical and epistemological approaches to regional research; and discussed the relevance of development models in various national media.

The issue may be of interest to a wide range of readers, from those working in African studies to those interested in media and communications studies.
