Echoes and reflections: on media ecology as a field of study
"Lance Strate takes the reader on a journey through the interdisciplinary, communication-centered field of media ecology, the study of media as environments, a field that encompasses the study of technology, symbol systems, and aesthetic form, in addition to traditional conceptions of media and mediation. Strate presents media ecology as an open-ended intellectual tradition, a network of great books and independent thinkers. Echoes and Reflections: On Media Ecology as a Field of Study is a unique book that provides the first comprehensive overview of the field, followed by a case study concerning the relationship between modes of communication and constructions of the self."--BOOK JACKET.
