"The Centre is established to advance the understanding of the origins and effects of technology. The object of the Centre is to pursue by a wide variety of approaches an investigation into the psychic and social consequences of technologies."    

Marshall McLuhan (Draft Constitution, 1965)

Our annual theme, HotMessAge, addresses how media and technology are central to today's  pressing social, economic, and environmental situations. But media and technology are also part of forging new worlds while addressing these challenges.


This year at the McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology we amplify some of the voices in Media Studies who offer hot takes with the cool possibilities of radical social change.
