response answer 2

Please use simple grammar and chose one of the question answer.

Armand Mattelart argues that communication encompasses the myriad circuits emerging from the circulation of goods, people and information. Central to this definition are notions of connection, distance, and mobility. Richard John and Daniel Headrick emphasize how revolutions in communication reveal sharp historical discontinuities in the technologies and institutions that forge and mediate these connections. Using these authors along with lectures as a starting point answer one of the following questions in 2-3 double-spaced pages:

a) How does the production and sale of fresh meat in late 19 th century America represent a revolution in communication? What are the key institutions and technologies that drove this revolution and what were some of its lasting impacts?

b How does the great migration in China and the creation of the world’s largest manufacturing and export economy represent a revolution in communication? What are the key institutions and technologies that drove, and continue to drive this revolution and what are some of its most important impacts?
