2009 Symposium


Welcome to the Frontiers of New Media Initiative at the University of Utah.

On September 18th and 19th, 2009, the Departments of Communication and History at the University of Utah hosted the second Frontiers of New Media Symposium, sponsored by David Simmons, and featuring AnnaLee Saxenian as keynote speaker. Fourteen leading scholars of communication, history, and media came together for two days of lively and provocative conversation about the intersection and future of their fields. The participating scholars, University of Utah faculty, students, and guests all came away with new contacts, new energy, and new ideas about the past, present, and future of media and media scholarship.
