Media Life is a course intended for undergraduate students across campus. Its goal is to make people aware of the role that media play in their everyday life. The key to understanding a "media life" is to see our lives not as lived WITH media (which would lead to a focus on media effects and media-centric theories of society), but rather IN media (where the distinction between what we do with and without media dissolves).

  • "[the  Invisible  City]  is  itself  an  expression  of  the  fact  that  the  new  world  in   which  we  have  begun  to  live  is  not  merely  open  on  the  surface,  for  beyond   the  visible  horizon,  but  also  open  internally,  penetrated  by  invisible  rays  and   emanations,  responding  to  stimuli  and  forces  beyond  the  threshold  of   ordinary  observation.  Many  of  the  original  functions  of  the  city,  once  natural   monopolies,  demanding  the  physical  presence  of  all  participants,  have  now   been  transposed  into  forms  capable  of  swift  transportation,  mechanical   manifolding,  electronic  transmission,  worldwide  distribution” (1961)      Mumford's works share a common concern with the ways that modern life as a whole, although providing possibilities for broader expression and development, simultaneously subverts those possibilities and actually ends up tending toward a diminution of purpose. He shows in lucid detail how the modern ethos released a Pandora's box of mechanical marvels which eventually threatened to absorb all human purposes into The Myth of the Machine , the title he used for his two-volume late work.
