This volume offers a diverse range of perspectives to the study of popular culture in East and Southeast Asia, by connecting the changing terrain of media industries and audiences in specific social settings in Asia to the course of global media development and international cultural flows.The need tosolicitthe emerging dynamics of cross-border consumption of cultural products, as well as de-territorialization and re-territorialization processes of cultural markets motivate the publication of this volume. 

Along this line of inquiry, this volume problematizes identity politics and power relations formed through religion, ethnicity, gender, and class dispositions. Based on well-grounded fieldwork and multi-layered analysis, the contributors who have done extensive research works in Asian popular culture critically examine possible space for resistance to the existing structure of domination. The work as a whole sways the conventional ideas of international media and cultural flow, by providing new insights into audience reception in the Asian context, and inviting others to rethink the existing theoretical framework in analyzing culture industries.
