Media Ecology ‘Un-plugged’ 2013 conference

‘Media ecology “unplugged” is a reminder that media technologies are not simply plug-in devices. The “unplugged” theme captures the wide span of environmental mediation prior to the wired and plugged-in revolution of mass media.  This mediation includes architecture, literacy, urban design, transportation, art, and other discursive and non-discursive forms. The “unplugged” theme also turns attention to recent and cutting-edge technologies that have de-tethered users from the plug.  These include satellites, nanotechnology, robotics, genetic engineering, modern pharmacology, cell phones, Bluetooth, e-readers, solar cells, green technologies, neuroscience, and much more.’
