Research Interests

Dr. Tajima tries to understand how the media operate, produce cultural products, and shape ways audiences think about themselves and their world. He emphasizes the extent to which we learn about society, such as politics, ourselves, and how to behave the social norm from mass-mediated messages. Current research focuses on how peoples globally are represented in the media and how they can be media users and message senders using critical theories of race, ethnicity, gender, social class, globalization, media production, and audience effect to answer his question. His recent research appears in Inter-Asia Cultural Studies, Journal of Magazines and New Media Research, Newspaper Research Journal, and Communication and Critical/Cultural Studies.
