The Mediated City – Part Two
1-3 October 2014
Los Angeles, USA
50 years in the global village – an examination of the modern city in the technological age. 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.
