Transnationalisation of television: From structure to text
This research concerns the transnationalisation of television; more and more scholars speak of transnational television, industries and cultures in an attempt to overcome the global-local and cultural imperialism-local appropriation dichotomies that have dominated the globalisation debate (Chalaby, 2005; Dowd & Janssen, 2011; Esser, 2007; Kuipers, 2011). Transnationalisation seems to be an adequate, theoretical concept for describing current developments in television, for instance because (seemingly) global media organisations are mainly networks of nationally or regionally operating companies. Thereby, the television industry can adapt to national or regional goals, limitations or demands while content and production practices are increasingly exchanged across borders. This research focuses on the production of TV formats to explore certain characteristics of the transnationalisation of television.
