Asian Congress for Media & Communication (ACMC)


This year’s theme, “Media and Culture: Global Hegemony and Local Identity,” explores media’s role in promoting the local culture vis-à-vis the global media trend. The conference seeks to examine the growing role of media’s cultural influence and how it can be harnessed to promote local cultures instead of only serving as a tool for global homogenization.
