This site is dedicated to The Media Ecology Project (MEP), a digital resource at Dartmouth that will facilitate the awareness of and critical study of Media Ecology: the dynamic ecology of historical media in relation to the public sphere and public memory.
The Media Ecology Project provides online access to primary moving image research materials, and engages dynamic new forms of scholarly production and online publishing.
We are working to connect archives of historical media to researchers in Film and Media Studies and related fields and disciplines, extending into the undergraduate classroom. We promote close textual studies of the subject matter, production, reception, and representational practices of media, in relation to research within and across the collections of participating archives.
We intend MEP to support and advocate the essential work of media archives.
