This lecture was delivered by Ishida Hidetaka of the University of Tokyo. Through comparative studies of media such as optics, photography, film, and TV, Hidetaka showed how modernisation of media technology from the West has been a historical vector in the Asian modernisation process, resulting in Asian cultures redefining their own systems of expression.
