Alternative Toronto

Alternative Toronto

Alternative Toronto is a SSHRC-supported digital humanities project that is building a collaborative archive and historical map of the city’s radical, countercultural and trans/feminist/queer communities of the 1980s. The project’s advisory collective includes media historian Lilian Radovac (U of T), researcher Sophie Toupin (McGill), archivist Sarah Demb (Harvard) and author Cory Doctorow, and we’re elated to join the McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology as a working group in 2017-18.


Lead Convener: Dr. Lilian Radovac Assistant Professor ICCIT and the principal investigator for Alternative Toronto.
