International Interdisciplinary Symposium PHILOSOPHY OF MEDIA – Issues of founding, establishing and/or revelation,  will be held on the Croatian island Cres between 16-18 September, 2011. Media-via portal editor M.A. Vesna Srnic is invited to present her papers “Glocal Multimedia Art” at the symposium, organised in the year in which we celebrate the centenary of the  birth of Marshall McLuhan.

In front of Program comitee PhD. Divna Vuksanovic (Serbia) and PhD. Sead Alic (Croatia) stressed: “We live in a time of media intercession, networking, virtual worlds, a growing impact of mass media on politics, culture, human life, experience, or even opinions as such. We exist in a time when the immersion into the world of the mass media reminds us of the fact that we as human beings throughout history have been determined by some sort of media and that only the modern preoccupation with the (mass) media has given rise to an awareness of (partial or total) oblivion of media intercession,especially during times of oral communication, written and print form.” (…)   “In this sense, the philosophy of media co-opts the scientific research of linguistics, psycholinguistics, media theory, the theory of special art, knowledge of techniques and technologies, research psychology, medicine, phonetics, cultural and visual studies, and other science disciplines, theoretical knowledge and practice experience.” tENrNp4O_ZE
