Welcome to Media Psychology Symposium 2020!

Thank you for participating in the Media Psychology Symposium 2020 hosted by Fielding Graduate University.

DOWNLOAD ATTENDEE GUIDE

By entering the Symposium, you join a host of top scholars and practitioners in the field of media psychology. The international base of symposium attendees includes several hundred media pros, psychologists, creatives, and business professionals from across the world.

As we all know, we are facing a new normal—a global cultural reset. Media and technology have become the lifelines to work, healthcare, education, entertainment, social and interpersonal ties, and commerce.  Along the way, they are also exposing social disparities and challenges.  Scholars and practitioners at the nexus of psychology, media, and technology are in a unique position to redefine normal and promote the role of psychology, social justice and human flourishing in the structures and content that support recovery.

This is our task. This is our collective symposium. We hope you engage with both newly formed and already established networks of colleagues at this symposium, as we tackle the challenging issues of our unique time.
