Description

The Impact of Cross Border Communication: The Intersection of History, Geopolitics, Technology and Theories of Media Influence

This presentation looks back at the evolution of theoretical frameworks used for conceptualizing the impact of cross border communication in the past 100 years. It provides a big picture overview of how historical events, combined with technological advances in communication, have shaped the academic and political debates about the influence of messages that cross borders. And how the accelerated technological developments of the past 20 years prompt researchers to take a more theoretically integrated approach for the study of cross border media impact.


Michael G. Elasmar, Ph.D., is a Professor of Communication at Boston University. Since 1989 his research has been primarily focused on the process and impact of cross-border communication. His books include The Impact of International Television (2002, 2014) and Through Their Eyes (2008). For more info: michaelelasmar.com
