Publication by 2012 DPDF Mediated Futures: Globalization and Historical Territories: Research Director Arvind Rajagopal.

Rather than assume that media technology is inherently global in its form, we should ask how it came to be regarded as such. This essay argues that the historical origins of the media are specifically North American. While their physical reach may be global, our understanding of the media’s relation to globalization will retain the influence of its provincial origin unless we bring it into view as a problem.
