O sector audiovisual e a sociedade da información en Galicia. Situación e prespectivas
This doctoral thesis is motivated by the need to know the implication of the first cultural industry of Galicia, the audiovisual, with the defining patterns of the Information Society.
The work is divided in two parts. In the first one, the author creates a system of indicators that allow to measure the involvement of any industrial sector with the IS, as long as it is located in a western community. In the second part, this metric is experimented empirically with the Galician audiovisual sector, using as a reference the quinquennium 2000-2005, with special attention to the 2001-2002 biennium. This period of time is motivated by being the first one in which the influence of the Galician Audiovisual Law, approved in 1999, in which the strategic value of this sector in Galicia is determined.
This research work analyzes three aspects that make up the three main objectives of the Information Society: the advancement of the quality of life that supposes to SI, the transformation of the product “information” into market value and the degree of commitment of the audiovisual sector with the designation of origin “made in Galicia”. Based on this classification, the role of the administration, citizenship and, fundamentally, the role of the Galician audiovisual production sector is analyzed.
The work follows a hypothetical-deductive methodology that establishes three objectives, three hypotheses, a theoretical framework where a definition of the Information Society is established and where the different metrics used in the world for the Information Society are analyzed, an analysis of data collected through a survey and in-depth interviews and final drafting.
