20-minute lecture for Oases Graduate School's unit on Media, Time & Consciousness. The lecture discusses Arjun Appadurai's 'mediascapes' framework; films that depict the conscientisation process, and a three-level analytical model to explore the relevant individual, group/organisational and global macro issues. These are my personal views only.
