The Media Fields research collective formed at the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2007 to advance scholarship on the spatial aspects of a range of media forms, including film, television, radio, and digital media.

In 2010, we launched an online journal, Media Fields Journal: Critical Explorations in Media and Space.

Our sixth conference, Ruins, will be held at UCSB on April 6 and 7, 2017 and is currently accepting submissions.
