Consolidating thoughts gathered throughout her research in ‘Japanese Wind’ and ‘Korean Wave’, Lisa Leung reconsiders the direction this line of media studies is taking. In other words, how do we make sense of the East Asian experience in rethinking the difference between ‘transnationalization’ and ‘globalization’, at a time when consuming globalized media becomes second nature? How does media transnationalization alter the conceptualization of ‘institutions’, ‘flow’, ‘process’, community, and public, at a time when the media implodes on our everyday life?
