The Fifth Annual Convention of the Media Ecology Association
RIT Campus, Rochester, New York
June 10-13, 2004

Media Environments and the Liberal Arts
Sponsored by
The Department of Communication and
The William A. Kern Professor in Communications
College of Liberal Arts
Rochester Institute of Technology

How do changing media environments influence the ways in which people 
express themselves, communicate with each other, and pass on knowledge 
to future generations? From cities to cyberspace, and ancient writing 
systems to digital communication technologies, media help shape human 
interaction, understanding, and organization. This conference explores 
the various ways in which past, present, and emerging media environments 
influence human life in general, and its self-examination via the 
liberal arts disciplines. These include the subjects of inquiry and the 
way research is conducted, changesin human and mass communication, 
policy-making, and evaluation, individual expression and representation, 
formation and change in cultural attitudes, media representations of 
natural environments, emerging digital expression (hyperfiction, digital 
poetry, electronic music), and the social impact of media.

What is Media Ecology?
"It is the study of media environments, the idea that technology and 
techniques, modes of information and codes of communication play a 
leading role in human affairs." -Lance Strate

You are invited to submit papers, panels, workshop proposals, and short
