Monash University lecturer in Communication and Media Studies, Dr Jinna Tay, launched her co-edited book, Television Histories in Asia, at Monash’s Caulfield campus on September 17.
Dr Tay, who edited the book with Emeritus Professor Graeme Turner, researches Asian media and cultures, history, national identities, and comparative Asian media studies.
Television Histories in Asia presents an analysis of television histories across India, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia, Japan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Malaysia and Bhutan.
Dr Tay said it was a ” lovely intimate book launch” and was appreciative of the presence and support of Media Comms colleagues from Melbourne University, Swinburne and RMIT.
“It was also fantastic that Prof Graeme Turner came down from University of Queensland to be here for the launch,” Dr Tay said.
Dr Tay said she hoped the book would be read by scholars of media histories, Asian studies and of course, set in Media Studies and television courses.
“It’s really important to understand that by looking through the particular TV histories of each nation, we can understand its political, cultural and social motivations and formations – and that each of it is different,” she said.
“What television does in each nation can’t be generalised but we hope that for students of media, they can see how television studies can be done via so many different methodologies and paradigms.”
