Subject: Re: cultural imperialism, modernization, and film

Dear Andres Luco,
Ella Shohat and Robert Stam's work might provide interesting views on your
topic of research. Their work develops and situates a critique of both
cultural imperialism and the hegemonic role of media/film in neo/colonial
processes in the context of globalization studies. A good place to start is
their essay "From the Imperial Family to the Transnational Imaginary: Media
Spectatorship in the Age of Globalization" Global/Local. Cultural
Production and the Transnational Imaginary. Eds. Rob Wilson and Wimal
Dissanayake. Durham: Duke UP, 1996.  145-70. You might also find some
helpful leads in Rey Chow's Primitive Passions. Although the study deals
primarily with Chinese Cinema, its analysis of the role of film in
processes of cultural dominantion and subject formation might be usefully
applied in different contexts. Hope that helps,
Heike Harting
