  5. 5. PROFESSIONAL THEORIES • While not having contributed specific theories of her own, Paglia supports the original theories of McLuhan. • Paglia has progressed herself not as a theorist in Media Ecology but a supporter and critical contributor through external works. • Her works include: • Vamps & Tramps • Sex, art, and the American culture • Glittering Images • Most importantly Sexual Personae, Art and Decadence from Nefertiti to Emily Dickenson.
  6. 6. PAGLIA & MCLUHAN • The emphasis of Media Ecology is geared toward identifying the changes in society based on an ecological progression of new mediums in technology. According to McLuhan the introduction of new mediums throughout the ages has affected the way in which members of a society communicate and interact. In order to understand the magnitude of impact that media has in our world McLuhan believes that media should be viewed from an ecological perspective.

  11. 11. CRITICAL FRAMEWORK • Apollonian & Dionysian • The Dionysian is no picnic. It is the chthonian realities which Apollo evades, the blind grinding of subterranean force, the long slow suck, the murk and ooze. It is the dehumanizing brutality of biology and geology, the Darwinian waste and bloodshed, the squalor and rot we must block from consciousness to retain our Apollonian integrity as persons. (pp. 5–6)
