Media Ecology Association 2010 Annual Convention
June 10-13, 2010
University of Maine
Theme: Media Ecology and Natural Environments
Pre-registration for the 2010 MEA Convention is now officially open! We
have a terrific line-up that you won’t want to miss. Our plenary
speakers include Don Ihde, Mary Catheron Bateson, Chet Bowers, Urusla
Hiese, and Andrea Polli.
To take advantage of the early registration fee (for MEA members only),
go to the MEA website (http://www.media-ecology.org/) and click on the
convention link on the left side of the screen. You’ll find the link to
the pre-registration form on the top right of the convention page.
Please fill out the entire form, making sure to indicate if you would
like to participate in the Saturday evening excursion to Bar Harbor and
Acadia National Park (the cost for the tour is $25, which we’ll collect
prior to the excursion; dinner’s at your own cost). Please sign up
early, so we can make sure we have enough buses to accommodate everyone.
We’d appreciate if you would also select your meal preference for the
Friday night banquet (cost is included in your convention fees).
Unless you are a sustaining member, you should use the Electronic
Payment link to pay your convention registration fee online.
If you decide to stay on-campus (the Edith Patch Hall is a comfortable
suite-style residence just a few minutes walk from the convention
venues), please also make sure to click on the Campus Housing
Registration Form link. You should complete and mail or fax the form
directly to the University of Maine’s Conference Services no later than
June 1 (Fax: 207-581-4097).
