How far, or in what ways, might alternative media have a significant role
to play in the construction or preservation of national/culture
Consider the nature of the relationship between media and issues of
national to cultural identity. A reference to national identity would
suggest consideration of what constitute/define a ‘nation’ and of the
relationships of national identity to issues of cultural identification
and to the nation-state.
Drawing on your knowledge of the problems inherent in the relationship
between ‘national’ media and ‘national identity’, in what ways might
alternative media contribute to this discussion?
Can alternative media resolve any of the problems surrounding questions
of national identities within nation-states?
