Along with Marshall McLuhan, Baudrillard was perhaps the most influential thinker of his time in terms of recognizing the uncomfortably strong influence modern media in the postindustrial age has over society and culture. With an intellectual background ranging from sociology to semiotics, he wrote numerous theses advancing an argument against the drive towards mass consumerism.

Keynote Speaker: Douglas Kellner, UCLA
