About Us

The McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology is an initiative of the Faculty of Information (iSchool) at the University of Toronto. It aims to continue the groundbreaking work initiated by the Canadian thinker Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980), who spent his career as Professor of English at the University of Toronto. It preserves and honors his intellectual heritage by fostering and supporting innovative scholarship and interdisciplinary research in the broad field of humanities, according to the tradition of the so-called Toronto School of Communication.

By supporting academic events and research initiatives, and by promoting broad-based collaboration among members of the international academic community as well as interested readers, the McLuhan Centre collaborates with other units at the University of Toronto, including the Faculty of Information, the St. Michael’s College, the Institute of Communication, Culture, Information and Technology, and any other external organization promoting the McLuhan legacy.
