The study of cultural industries aims to show students that culture also has an important economic, business and technological dimension. Cultural industries often include television, radio, film, newspapers and magazines, books, music, Internet content, video games, and advertising. These are all activities whose main objective is to communicate with an audience, create texts.
Since the end of the 20th century, digitally-based technologies have fostered a revolutionary process of convergence in these industries, and have diluted their traditional differences as text supports.
The changes that we are living, and those that we will get to see, have transformed the way we humans communicate through the media, as well as the function and organization of these institutions in society.
