The Media Ecology Association invites proposals for a research grant in the
amount of $2500 sponsored by the Urban Communication Foundation.
Proposals should be grounded in a theoretical or philosophical approach associated with the field of media ecology and should address topics of media ecological concern regarding the study of cities and urban environments as they relate to human communication, social interaction, technological mediation, and cultural change and continuity. Proposals concerned with identity and affiliation in relation to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, and other differences that make a difference are encouraged.
Proposals will be evaluated via anonymous review, and in addition to the
stipend, the author(s) will receive complimentary membership in the Media
Ecology Association (including subscription to Explorations in Media
Ecology) for the year of the award and registration at our annual
convention. A program session at the annual convention will be devoted to
the research study, and when completed, the study will be published in
Explorations in Media Ecology (which would not preclude publication
elsewhere). The competition will be open to graduate students registered
for degree programs and who have been Media Ecology Association members for at least one year.
The application should be accompanied by an abstract no longer than 100
words followed by a one-page description of the proposed study. In
addition, the application should be accompanied by a faculty letter of
