  • If ‘New Media’ Isn’t New Anymore… What’s Next?

    November 17, 2023

    The term “new media” refers to any media that’s digital, such as a TV show, a blog, or an online newspaper.  

    However, "even though it's in the title of my professorship, the phrase is old and isn't that commonly used anymore," says Jay Bolter, professor and Wesley Chair of New Media at Georgia Tech's School of Literature, Media, and Communication. "The reason for that is because it has a shelf life. That is to say, what's new media today isn't new media tomorrow, or at least won't be in five years or ten years, given the pace of change in digital technology." 

    So, if it isn't called new media anymore, what are Georgia Tech students learning?

    Since Godzilla crawled out of the ocean in 1954, a monstrous consequence of the atomic age, ecohorror has given modern audiences an imaginative way to grapple not only with our primal fear of nature — but also with our complicated feelings about humanity’s impact on the environment.

    This subgenre of horror, in which people face the wrath of nature and its emissaries, has never been more popular — driven in large measure by climate change anxiety and showcase titles such as the hit video game and HBO series The Last of Us.

  • AI: Am I...Being Replaced?

    October 16, 2023

    AI AM I.jpg

    In 2023, artificial intelligence is busy. It crafts blog posts, designs advertisements, answers customer service complaints, and even completes homework assignments. And those are just a few of its newer skills — it’s been reviewing resumes, manufacturing automobiles, suggesting songs, recommending products, and surveilling human faces and bodies for years.

    These activities have long required human minds and, in many cases, eyes, ears, mouths, or hands. Now, it seems reasonable for people to ask, “Am I being replaced?”
