Drones are cheap, fairly simple to use, and could potentially change the way we advertise, collect news, and see the world. As we enter the uncertain terrain of drone technology and its journalistic, message delivery, advertising, surveillance, and other media applications, new research opportunities lend themselves to us. This diverse panel examines several angles of this technology including its visual aesthetic, legal, technological, philosophical, and cultural implications.
Moderator: Olesya Venger, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
Panelists: Lawrence Mullen, University of Nevada @ Las Vegas; A History of the Aerial Perspective: Implications for Drone Journalism
