Click here for conference location and schedule

The Comparative Media Initiative seeks to broaden our understanding of media by critically examining how the same technologies work in radically different ways across the globe, juxtaposing media practices in Africa, Latin America, and Asia as well as in Western centers.  At the same time, we do not study one medium in isolation but focus on the interaction between emerging, dominant, and residual media which always exist side by side.  Both modes of comparison aim to decenter dominant modes of media historiography by highlighting the reciprocal exchange between aesthetic forms and technological innovations as they take place in specific contexts that range from state socialism to advanced commodity cultures to Islamic theocracies.  

In order to pursue this comparative approach to the theory and history of media the conference assembles scholars from literary studies, art history, anthropology, architecture, film, music, and other related fields.
