The City as a Site for Media Regulations




In modules two and three, we visited the concept of site and understanding how sites are created. Censorship is enacted on a site. In this module, we will look at how the city becomes a site for media regulations.

Compulsory Readings

1. Jai Sen: The Unintended City Link

2. Deborah Stevenson: Introduction

This excerpt from Deborah Stevenson's book on the city as a spectacle allows us to rethink the notion of the city as a composite entity. Jai Sen's article helps us to understand how different groups within the city create cities despite processes of planning, Deborah Stevenson's excerpt pushes us to view the city in all its symbolism - the World Trade Center Towers symbolic of not just capitalism, but everything that New York stands for and the interconnectedness of this symbolism between global cities.
