 Media Ecologies / Capture 

 Primary Focus 

The second iteration of the Seminar was split between two semester-long working groups: Media Ecologies (Fall 2016) and Capture (Winter 2017).

The Media Ecologies Seminar revisits thinking around the conjunction of media, ecologies, and ecosystems in order to come to terms with the enduring relevance and usage of “media ecologies.” It brings together realms as distinct as business, logistics, and critical media theory. The Capture Seminar explores processes of inscription, data capture, and surveillance, on the one hand, and forms of seizure, occupation, and absorption, on the other.
