Media and protest: Technological change and cultural disturbance

Authors: Lance Strate
Page Start: 231

In this revised version of a keynote address delivered at the Media, Protest and Social Change Symposium, sponsored by the College of Management and Academic Studies, Rishon LeZion, Israel, on 14 March 2012, the phenomenon of protest is explored based on a media ecology approach, in light of the understanding that innovations in media and technology result in cultural disturbances. Following a review of the disturbances associated with writing and literacy, the print revolution and the electronic media revolution, it is argued that contemporary protest takes place in three arenas: in real places, on mass media venues, and online, resulting in new forms of protest and unprecedented forms of cultural disturbance.

Ideas and built environments

Built environments – in this case, churches – provide a concrete venue to experience media ecology. While many often think of communication media or ideas as the ‘stuff’ of media ecology, architecture also serves as a physical environment, a media environment and a ideational environment. Beginning with Ong’s ‘writing reshapes consciousness’, this pedagogy piece explores how Christian architecture shapes Christian theology. Church buildings offer visual images, aural experience, spatial orientation, verbal and nonverbal human cues and ritual expressions of Christianity. The course described here shows how the location can instruct students in both media ecology and theology.
