The twenty-first century is witness to complex social, political, and cultural phenomena transforming the world in which we live. There are numerous aspects to this global process; most of them, however, are related one way or another to the media of communication which foster and accelerate it. The chapters in this book approach media and international/intercultural communication from various global perspectives. The authors provide insight into the impact of media on different contexts, cultures and nations. One theme that weaves its way throughout this collection of essays is an intercultural one, broadly defined as the contact point between two cultures that changes both to some degree. Scholars from different places in the world try to understand, explain and/or argue from a variety of traditions, perspectives and values. They examine the contact point between culture and identity, media and culture, art and media, technology and translation, theater and culture, etc., in order to better understand how and to what degree changes occur.
