Immediacy is a student-centered, online journal of the School of Media Studies at the New School in New York. Emphasizing the School’s philosophy for the integration of media theory, history, and myriad forms of media practice, the purpose of the journal is to provide a space for fresh approaches and perspectives in the understanding of media and media-influenced issues. We encourage graduate, undergraduate, and doctoral students in all media-related fields to use this online forum to test ideas, creatively solve communication problems, and engage in rigorous conceptual analysis of media forms and practices. Each themed issue is devoted to a deeper examination of a pressing question or problem through experimental, documentary, artistic, narrative, and written forms of expression.
