The article proposes a re-reading and enrichment of the approach of media ecology, which considers media as environments, through the concepts of social field by Pierre Bourdieu and of figuration by Norbert Elias. The emphasis on the power dynamics activated or made visible by the media and on the processes of interaction between the elements of social networks makes the Bourdieusian approach and that of Elias particularly useful for understanding communication processes in the digital media age. Through the contextual consideration of similar concepts on a theoretical level, the very significance of media ecology can be sub-ject to an actualization based on the revision of the metaphor of media as envi-ronments and on the enhancement of an ecological vision of mediatization.
Keywords: media ecology; social field; Pierre Bourdieu; figuration; Norbert Elias; mediatization.
