By way of photography, cinema, television and other visual media, urban space is communicated and made meaningful—be it from the effect of photography and cinema on the Modernist City to the impact of new technology on contemporary urban planning. Accordingly, with each paradigm shift in the aesthetics and form of mass media, our conceptualization of cities become transformed and altered.
New Cities/New Media seeks to explore the ways in which urban landscapes have transformed new media production and how new media has played a role in transforming our urban landscapes—both historically as well as in current production. The conference is intended to bring together an interdisciplinary group of scholars and practitioners to address the inter-play between media, the production of cities and our collective urban experiences.
The conference will take place on the University of Southern California campus the weekend of November 15-17, 2002. Please send a 500-1000 word abstract that addresses any aspect of the relationship between new cities and new media to the below address or e-mail address by July 30, 2002. Also include a one page curriculum vitae or short biography. Notification for acceptance by September 1, 2002.
