Public/Private Intersections in New Media is a collaboration among Northeastern librarians, students, and Communication and Journalism professors.

This project grew out of a panel discussion by the same name which took place in October, 2005. Learn more about the panel (MS Powerpoint).

The project is intended to introduce students to the key concepts in new media and to address a host of new media issues including the collapse of distinctions between media forms and the societal effects of new technologies such as blogs, chat rooms, TiVo, and Facebook. Questions explored --- Do new technologies change... how we access information?... the type of information upon which we rely?... how we communicate with each other?... our perception of the limitations or liberties of free speech?

new media n.
any interactive media, esp. electronic mass media combined with computers; also, this combination as a profession.
