THE SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION OF THE MEDIA ECOLOGY ASSOCIATION
June 22-26, 2005
Fordham University
New York, New York
<http://www.media-ecology.org>

THE BIASES OF MEDIA

Media are often criticized for the biases of their content, but media 
ecology is also concerned with the intellectual, emotional, temporal, 
spatial, political, social, metaphysical, and epistemological biases 
associated with different forms of communication and different types of 
technology.

Featured speakers at the Sixth Annual MEA Convention include Paul 
Levinson, Eric McLuhan, Frank E. X. Dance, Sara van den Berg, Robert 
White, and James Carey (and expect a few surprises!).

Convention activities will take place at Fordham University’s Lincoln 
Center campus in midtown Manhattan, located at
113 West 60th Street, New York, NY 10023
