Transnational Media Relations in Europe: International Program Exchange and Cultural Transfer as Component of an European Media Culture

Completed research project

Political attempts were accordingly substantial in the twentieth century to immunise one’s own territory where possible from within against external influences and to enlist the media for the integration of mostly nationally-defined communities. Of interest here is the relationship between the inherent transnationality of modern mass media on the one hand and attempts at the creation of identity and political containment on the other hand.
