Alternative Toronto

Alternative Toronto

Alternative Toronto is a SSHRC-supported pilot research initiative 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 is guided by an advisory collective that includes 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 the digital history project Alternative Toronto.
