As part of the international conference, “The Toronto School: Then, Now, Next” (October 13-16, 2016), this event is hosted and organized by the McLuhan Centre for Culture & Technology at the University of Toronto in collaboration with the T. Fisher Rare Book Library.
The foundational ideas of three key figures of the Toronto School can be found on the St. George campus of the University of Toronto: the Harold Innis fonds, housed at the University Archives; Marshall McLuhan’s heavily annotated working library, held at the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library; and the Northrop Frye fonds at the E.J. Pratt Library of Victoria University. This special open house at the Fisher is a rare opportunity to view highlights – including original manuscripts, correspondence, and books – from all three collections.
Curated by Loryl MacDonald and John Shoesmith.
Eric McLuhan and Andrew McLuhan will be on hand to speak on the role Marshall McLuhan’s personal library played in his life and research.
