2014 marks the fifty-year anniversary of one of the 20th century’s most

introduced the media-as-the-message, it presented the world with the
metaphor of the global village. Half a century after the publication of
this revolutionary text, The Mediated City – Los Angeles – Conference seeks
to explore the multiple ways in which the city of today is experienced,
perceived, represented and constructed as a ‘mediated’ phenomenon.
