Toronto in the footsteps of Marshall McLuhan
App launch with Paolo Granata, Kate Marshall, Denise Pinto.
This mobile app will take you on a tour of McLuhan’s Toronto, mapping out spaces and places that were meaningful to him. Extracts from his letters, both written and read aloud, bring the city alive and provide a unique window into the life of an extraordinary Canadian.
“McLuhanWalks” is a project promoted by the Urban Media Lab research initiative led by Paolo Granata, Visiting Professor and McLuhan Centenary Fellow at the University of Toronto, in conjunction with Digitelling and MobileMuseum research units at the University of Bologna. It aims to design and develop new forms of storytelling for the historical, artistic and cultural heritage through mobile technologies.
