Globalization and media flows have been scrutinized extensively in media andcommunication studies. Compared to the totalizing discourse of globalization, the scopeof transnationalism offers a more tangible entry point for studying both the cohesiveelements brought about by virtual and material flows and the social and cultural tensionfields that arise between the varied scales of the national and the transnational.Departing from the theme of this special issue, and based upon both geopolitical andcultural considerations concerning mediation, this article aims to survey some of thematerial and symbolic implications of contemporary media flows. Theoretically, it drawsupon two tropes, geopolitics and cosmopolitanism, which provide paradigmatic tools toreflect upon technological, spatial, and cultural dimensions of flows.
