The McLuhan Centre for Culture & Technology, Faculty of Information (iSchool) at the University of Toronto, is pleased to announce a Fall 2016/Winter 2017 rollout of events. Weekly sessions carry on the “Monday Night Seminar” tradition of McLuhan, where open, frank and sometimes explosive exchange takes place in the same intimate Coach House setting where McLuhan once held court.

A roster of programs for Fall 2016/Winter 2017 brings together an eclectic mix of innovators and thinkers from the university and the larger global village. This program of events is designed to challenge notions, provoke thought and help us imagine our collective future.

2016/2017 theme:
The new shape of things: Big Data, Big Stories

Our theme last year was “City as Classroom” where we sought insight and experience that the city has to offer to inform and stimulate. This year we go beyond the city in exploring the extent to which McLuhan’s adage that “the medium is the message” applies to the underlying influences of our data surround and in particular “big data” that shape and influence how we see, act and grow.
We seek explore data both literally and metaphorically from a variety of perspectives of science, the arts, business, industry and academe.
