Media Flow in the Global South: A Multi-Modal Critical Discourse Analysis of Al Jazeera’s My Nigeria
This study argues that Al Jazeera represents a shift in the media production of nonwestern audiences, allowing new identities to emerge. However, it also cautions that this new space should not be valorized yet, as there might be other ideological underpinnings that shape this new flow. The study concludes that western universalism continues to shape the production of culture in the Global South, thereby altering the cultural realities of the people.
