Kingston artist releases rare McLuhan video

13Feb12

Canadian author and media analyst Marshall McLuhan is known throughout the world for his innovative and sometimes controversial theories and ideas. In his lifetime, McLuhan published dozens of books, journals and papers on media, communication theories and popular culture.

Now, 40 years after it was taken, Kingston-based photojournalist Bob Fleming will debut “Wiring Humanity: Performing Arts, Education and Marshall McLuhan’s Media Think,” a videotaped interview with McLuhan from 1972.

The premiere of the video will take place on Tuesday at Dunning Hall on the campus of Queen’s University. The interview will be shown form 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. and will be followed by a discussion by faculty from the university’s Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures.

Dunning Hall is at the corner of Union Street and University Avenue.    http://tinyurl.com/7swsb99
