Deadline for submission of abstracts: 15 February 2014

Keynote Presentation: Kenneth Frampton
Host: Woodbury University.

It’s starting point is the 50 year anniversary of Marshall McLuhan’s Understanding Media and the idea of “the global village”.  It aims to bring people from diverse backgrounds together around the issue of the modern city. Please pass on the call and get in touch with any queries. In addition to standard papers we are asking for proposals for a range of activities: workshops, panel discussions, book launches etc. So feel free to propose something of interest.

2014 marks the fifty-year anniversary of one of the 20th century’s most influential texts –  Understanding Media by Marshall McLuhan not only introduced the media-as-the-message, it presented the world with the metaphor of the global village.

Half a century after the publication of this revolutionary text, The Mediated City – Los Angeles – Conference seeks to explore the multiple ways in which the city of today is experienced, perceived, represented and constructed as a ‘mediated’ phenomenon.

Key dates:

15 Feb  2014    Deadline for abstracts
15 June 2014    Deadline for full papers / detailed proposals
01 Oct  2014    Conference – Los Angeles (Woodbury University)
