New Media in Pakistan

New media in PK 2010 coverThe study focuses on new media technologies, their contexts and consequences. As art, artifact, the way they are understood, cultural form, they are components of digital culture in Pakistan in 2010. Public & digital culture, new info technology and development, film and TV, piracy laws and many other areas are explored

The challenge was to meet the momentum of this wave, welcome it, re-evaluate it, re-use it and re-purpose it for own agendas”, says Yasir Husain in the conclusion of the research.
“Some we do consciously, but even then some things never get noticed, or are just impossible to contend with.”

The concrete hope is that this study will set the stage for more links, exchanges and collaborations to happen.
