Global Media Ecologies

Presiding Officer: 
Heidi Schlipphacke, University of Illinois, Chicago

This panel welcomes papers that address the topic of “Global Media Ecologies” in a broad sense. In an age defined simultaneously by increased media sharing across national lines and the retrenchment of perceived “clashes” of cultures, an analysis of media ecologies offers a unique window onto shifting notions of community and identity. Papers might reflect on contemporary ecologies created by new media platforms, softwares and marketing; on old media forms (radio, television, film) and their popularity in a variety of local and global spaces; on the limits and possibilities of translation; on the emergence of distinct popular narratives and tropes, etc. Papers may analyze these and/or other questions within one region or across regions.

Please upload proposals by June 26, 2017 via the PAMLA website: Please e-mail me with any questions.
