<nettime-ann> McLuhan Conference, Then | Now | Next, Toronto, 6-10 November 2011


Dear Colleague

I'm writing to draw your attention to what looks to be a conference being held at the University of Toronto in honour of the Marshall McLuhan centenary.  It would be great to see you there.  It certainly promises to be a great event.  The organizers have assembled an amazing roster of speakers and events.

Please also distribute this information to any students, colleagues, or others who might be interested.

                                   McLUHAN100 Then | Now | Next

More than fifty years ago, writing from a modest outbuilding at the University of Toronto, Marshall McLuhan gave voice to a vision that transformed the globe: a society enmeshed in media, everywhere connected, culturally configured by mediating technologies of
information and communication.

In celebration of the centenary of Marshall McLuhan's birth, Toronto is hosting the first international McLuhan conference and festival:

  -- 100 leading thinkers and speakers from around the world
  -- 300 art installations, concerts and screenings
  -- Explosive and insightful debates

Don't miss out. For more information and to REGISTER go to:
