Learn more about Digital CGA
A growing collection of digital resources for the study of Global Asia, produced and hosted by our colleagues at the NYU Shanghai Center for Global Asia. Resources include: Index Buddhicus, Asian Studies in China, India China Studies, and Chinese Sources on Maritime Asia.
Asia features prominently in the rapidly changing global economic and cultural landscape. Housed at the Department of Cinema Studies, Tisch at NYU, the AFMI is envisioned to be a multifaceted hub for teaching, research, public outreach, and transnational networking related to both historical and contemporary formations of Asian film and media. We conceive Asia to comprise all countries east of Bosphorus, yet the Initiative will also engage various trans-Asian interactions that include the Asian-Pacific region and the Asian diaspora.
The film and media forms that our curricular offerings, research projects and public events will try to encompass include film (originally made on celluloid), video, TV, radio, and digital media, as well as the political economy of the film and media industry, audiences, mass culture, media activism, and experimental audiovisual arts in a variety of forms and formats.
