Abstract

In a keynote address delivered to the Speech Communication Association in 1973, Neil Postman discussed the new graduate program in media ecology that he established in New York University's School of Education. Media ecology is presented as a field of inquiry based on the metaphor that all communication is an environment, and utilizing a methodology called context analysis. Discussing communication environments as systems with boundaries, in relation to suprasystems and subsystems, Postman also considered the question of how technology affects human perception, feeling, and value.
