INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE & DEW LINE FESTIVAL
2011 marks the centenary of the birth of Marshall McLuhan. To celebrate this event and this great figure of media theory who foresaw very early how technology would transform humanity, the University of Toronto’s McLuhan Program in Culture & Technology joined forces with The City of Toronto’s Economic Development and Culture Division and Mozilla to create the McLuhan100 project.
As part of McLuhan100, the Then/Now/Next conference & festival will take place in Toronto from November 7 to November 10. A hundred Canadian and international experts will participate to these four days dedicated to Marshall McLuhan’s theories and their echoes in today’s world.
