Explorations in Media Ecology - the latest addition to Intellect's journal portfolio
Thursday, 28 July 2011
Intellect is delighted to announce that from 2011, we will be publishing the seminal journal, Explorations in Media Ecology. Now in its 10th volume, this publication continues to break new ground and under the editorship of Paul Grosswiler will be a fantastic addition to our Cultural & Media Studies portfolio.
Explorations in Media Ecology explores the relationships between media, technology, symbolic form, communication, consciousness, and culture. Its scope is interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary. Media ecology provides a rich philosophical, historical and practical context for studying our increasingly technological and mediated society and culture with an emphasis on historical context.
Media ecology scholarship emphasizes a humanistic approach to understanding media, communication, and technology, with special emphasis on the ways in which we have been and continue to be shaped and influenced by our inventions and innovation. The Media ecology approach is predicated on understanding that media, symbols, and technologies play a leading role in human affairs, and function as largely invisible environments affecting the way we think, feel, act, and organize ourselves collectively.
For subscription information and a call for papers, please visit the journal's page on our website.
Explorations in Media Ecology is the journal of the Media Ecology Association.
Lance Strate - the journal's founding editor - wrote an article for The Guardian's The Big Ideas series this week: 'Marshall McLuhan's message was imbued with conservatism'.
