CONFERENCE: Media Fields 5: Encounters

April 2, 2015 from 3:00pm - 6:00pm

The Media Fields Collective at UC Santa Barbara is excited to announce its fifth biennial conference exploring the intersections of media and space. We propose “encounters” as a framework through which these intricate relationships may be addressed. This term has been strategically deployed to think about exchanges, contact zones, and interactions among agents, institutions, and technologies in various positions of power. Our goal is to reexamine the ways in which the encounter has been deployed and to explore its potential as a critical framework that may be applied to emerging trends across media studies. We invite participants to consider encounter’s potential for creating mutualities among parties and explore the ways particular encounters reflect, overturn, cloud or reverse this potential.
