Media Ecology Comes into Its Own
Salas, Alexandra
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v72 n8 p62-66 Apr 2007
The study of communication systems catalysts and influence has taken on a newer form--media ecology. Participants have emerged from many disciplines in order to create this new field of inquiry that explores and posits human communication, culture, communication environments, and their evolution and interconnectedness from pre-literacy to the digital age. Born out of North American academic traditions and thought, media ecology is gaining attention and a following in broader and international circles. Media ecology's global expansion is being hailed by the upcoming Media Ecology Association (MEA) conference in Mexico City which focuses technology and transformation. MEA is not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting the study, research, criticism, and application of media ecology in educational, industry, political, civic, social, cultural, and artistic contexts; and to the open exchange of ideas, information, and research among the association's members and the larger community. This article discusses the topic of media ecology and the efforts MEA is making to promote the subject.
