International Journal of McLuhan Studies

Web:; E-mail:

Barcelona, September 2011

Dear friends, colleagues and fellows,

On the wave of the vibrant multidisciplinary debate which has been revitalized around McLuhan’s thought in the conferences, seminars and various events organized worldwide for the McLuhan centennial (1911‐2011), this journal aims to stimulate new reflections on the immense contribution of this author and
promote innovative critical work crossing national and disciplinary boundaries.
The purpose of The International Journal of McLuhan Studies is to cover a wide variety of disciplines including Media studies, Performing and Visual Arts, Linguistics, Literature, Intellectual and Cultural history, Social Sciences, Educational Studies and Anthropology.

Under the scientific direction of Derrick de Kerckhove and Eric McLuhan, and combining a more traditional paper issue with a digital variant, The International Journal of McLuhan Studies aims at a hypertextual, interconnected and “open‐ended” critical discourse. It will embrace original research in the section “Messages” and provide space for other kinds of publication: the section “From the Gutemberg Galaxy” will feature book reviews, annual surveys of recent writing and unpublished material, while the section “On Air” will include interviews with artists, writers, and intellectuals. “Media ecology” will be dedicated to short notes, review articles, assessments of recent noteworthy events and critical surveys of important scholarly questions.

We are pleased to invite you to join this new initiative and to be active members of an open community that will draw the topics, the ideas and the new possibilities for this experience.
