Media Ecology Convention at Santa Clara, CA, 19-22 June, 2008

Amazing!   Walter Ong surfaces!   One of McLuhan’s major Mentors!

The Ninth Annual Convention of the Media Ecology Association
2008 Call for Awards Nominations  

Communication, Technology and the Sacred
Santa Clara, California
June 19-22, 2008

Convention Coordinators:

If, as Walter Ong suggests, technologies of communication and information affect noetic economies (structures of thought); and if noetic economies have to do with what it means to be human; it seems important to consider how the spoken and the mediated word and image contribute to the human soul – or to the sacred. How have technologies and the larger media world altered our experiences of the sacred?

  1. Thanks for posting this notice about the MEA Conference. On Thursday, June 19 at the conference I will be presenting a paper comparing Marshall McLuhan’s Laws of the Media Tetrad with Claude Levi-Strauss’s Canonical Formula. On Saturday, June 21 I will be chairing a panel on Technology in Education. I invite all interested parties to attend these sessions.
