Media at Sydney Presents:

Toby Miller

‘Greening the Media’

Drawing on his new book with Richard Maxwell (*Greening the Media*, Oxford
University Press, 2012) Toby Miller engages in  an alternative history of
the media, both past and present, that emphasises their paramount role in
environmental pollution and worker exploitation. The talk will question
today's prevalent cybertarian fantasies about a new, post-smokestack
capitalism and the mythology of the new media.

*Toby Miller is a British-Australian-US interdisciplinary social scientist.
He is the author and editor of over 30 books, has published essays in more
than 100 journals and edited collections. **His teaching and research cover
the media, sports, labour, gender, race, citizenship, politics, and
cultural policy, as well as the success of Hollywood overseas and the
adverse effects of electronic waste. He taught at Murdoch, Griffith
University, and the University of New South Wales and was a professor at
New York   University , University of California, Riverside, City
University, London.*
