Focus and Scope

International in scope yet regional in its commitment, the Media Studies Journal of Aotearoa New Zealand invites scholarly work that reflects the diversity of media studies in terms of territories, technologies, cultures, users and governance. Whether looking outside-in or inside-out, MEDIANZ publishes local and international media scholarship, particularly of relevance to New Zealand. This includes film/media production and policy in small nations; settler, indigenous and migrant articulations of place and identity; global, satellite and diasporic media flows; and situated social media and digital practices.
