7642 Estados Unidos, Media at the Center, A McLuhan Centenary Event, Fordham University, Lance Strate

Here’s some advance notice of our contribution to this year’s festivities.

We’ll have a web page up about it soon, and I’ll share the URL when it is.

The Sept. 17th Symposium will feature a keynote by Eric McLuhan; talks on new media by Paul Levinson, Bob Logan, and Bob Blechman; a session on McLuhan at Fordham featuring his former students including Pete Fornatale and John Carey, as well as his former assistant Paul Ryan; a session on McLuhan and Theology featuring a talk by Joseph Kim; a screening of the rarely seen 1961 television program The Gutenberg Galaxy, produced by Gary Gumpert; followed by a panel discussion with Gumpert, Joshua Meyrowitz, Daniel Czitrom, Paul Grosswiler, and the new head of the McLuhan Program at the U. of Toronto, Dominique Scheffel-Dunand. In conjunction with the centenary celebrations, we will also have a special preview screening of Tiffany Shlain’s documentary, Connections, on Sept. 25th.
