The McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology is hosting the upcoming international conference on “The Toronto School: THEN | NOW | NEXT” (October 14-16, 2016), promoted by the University of Toronto.
The Conference aims to bring together international scholars to engage in dialogue on the origins, rise, decline and the rebirth of the so-called Toronto School of Communication. Discussion will focus on its major figures, including Harold Innis, Eric Havelock, Northrop Frye, Marshall McLuhan, Walter Ong, Edmund Carpenter, among others. The Conference will also examine the extent to which the Toronto School has provided a legacy that continues to offer insight on crucial and systemic issues facing contemporary society across various disciplines.
