McLuhan’s Global Village Today – Conference in Marburg, Germany

08Nov10

I have been informed that there is a McLuhan Conference as well in Marburg, Germany in May, 2011, exact dates not provided.

International Conference at the Marburg Centre for Canadian Studies:

McLuhan’s Global Village Today:Transatlantic Perspectives on Medium and Message

In May 2011, the Marburg Centre for Canadian Studies will commemorate the 100th anniversary of Marshall McLuhan’s birth by hosting an interdisciplinary conference on Canada’s – if not the world’s – most famous media theorist. The conference, entitled “McLuhan’s Global Village Today:Transatlantic Perspectives on Medium and Message”, examines McLuhan’s theoretical concepts, such as ‘the global village’, ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ media, notions of the medium and the message as well as their impact on other disciplines and their transatlantic dimensions.

McLuhan’s ideas are not only relevant in the fields of media and communication studies but they have also offered interesting insights in the context of literary and cultural studies, among many others. The Marburg Centre for Canadian Studies is delighted to announce that Professor David Staines (University of Ottawa) and Professor Richard Cavell (University of British Columbia) have confirmed their participation in the conference. The Historic Townhall of Marburg will be the venue of the event.

Call for Papers

Internationale Tagung am Marburger Zentrum für Kanada-Studien:

McLuhan’s Global Village Today:Transatlantic Perspectives on Medium and Message

Im Mai 2011 veranstaltet das Marburger Zentrum für Kanada-Studien anlässlich des 100. Geburtstags Marshall McLuhans eine interdisziplinäre Konferenz rund um den bekanntesten Medien- und Kommunikationstheoretikers Kanadas – wenn nicht sogar der Welt. Die Tagung zum Thema “McLuhan’s Global Village Today:Transatlantic Perspectives on Medium and Message” untersucht McLuhans Theorien über das ‚globale Dorf‘ (‚global village‘), die Unterscheidung zwischen ‚heißen‘ und ‚kalten‘ Medien, ‘the medium is the message’, sowie deren Verwendung in anderen Disziplinen und deren transatlantische Dimensionen.

McLuhan’s Ideen sind nicht nur für die Medien- und Kommunikationswissenschaft relevant, sondern finden auch in anderen Fachgebieten, wie der Kultur- und Literaturwissenschaft verbreitet Anwendung. Das Marburger Zentrum für Kanada-Studien freut sich, dass Professor David Staines (University of Ottawa) und Professor Richard Cavell (University of British Columbia) ihre Teilnahme an der Tagung zugesagt haben. Die Veranstaltung findet im Historischen Rathaussaal statt.
