phenomena in the local and global context. The Inter-Asia Journal of Cultural Studies
(Routledge), which started being published from 1999, has been playing the role of a
forum which has made networks of critical MCS researchers of not only in East Asia
but also in of South East Asia, and wherein mutual problematics are shared.
From the above discussion it becomes clear that East Asian MCS has formed its own
special characteristics in the past twenty or so years, while responding to the social
situations which each society has had to face. Japan has shown a strong special
characteristic of a critical response to the sudden increase in power of the post-industrial
society and conservative democracy. Although, in South Korea and Taiwan critical MCS
showed an excess of theories with little concerns with local historical realities, there is a
necessity to point out the fact that many researchers had actually intervened in social
movements.
By eagerly jumping into the journalist union movements, media watch, and media
reform movements, critical researchers attempted to put into practice their political
visions. The Solidarity for Democratic Press Movements, Citizens’ Alliance for the
Media Reform are the major engines of the media reform activism in South Korea. In
Taiwan cultural studies provided the Taiwanese democratization movement with a
theoretical foundation. They carried significant achieved good research
accomplishments regarding identity politics, such as with reference to Taiwan’s
independence, and minority issues including gender and Japanese and American
colonialism, etc. These problematics came out of the historical reality faced by the
Taiwanese such as having been a colonized people by the Japanese, including the
confrontation between, and frustrations among, Taiwan’s natives and the emigrants from
