New York University’s Draper Program in Humanities and Social Thought will host a book launch for Mediated: How The Media Shapes Your World and The Way You Live in It, authored by adjunct professor Thomas de Zengotita, on Monday, March 7, 5-7 p.m. at NYU’s Jurow Lecture Hall (100 Washington Square East).
Norman Mailer compares the book to Marshall McLuhan’s Understanding Media, and Publishers Weekly adds that “in a deceptively colloquial, intellectually dense style, de Zengotita posits that since the 1960s, Americans have belonged to a culture of reflexivity, and the media in all their forms have put us there.”
