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).

    1. 1. we devote more and more of our lives to media and as we lose ourselves in media… we try to hang on to who we think we are (or want to be) but… we are social animals so: how can we keep it real and make a difference?
    2. 2. “ The upshot is simply a question of time, but that the time will come when the machines will hold the real supremacy over the world and its inhabitants” (1863)
