Marshall McLuhan’s Mosaic:

Probing the Literary Origins of Media Studies
Published by University of Toronto Press

One hundred years after Marshall McLuhan’s birth, Elena Lamberti explores a fundamental, yet neglected aspect of his work: the solid humanistic roots of his original ‘mosaic’ form of writing. In this investigation of how his famous communication theories were influenced by literature and the arts, Lamberti proposes a new approach to McLuhan’s thought. Reconnecting McLuhan with his literary past, Marshall McLuhan’s Mosaic is a demonstration of one of his greatest
ideas: that literature not only matters, but can help us understand the hidden patterns that rule our environment.

“Marshall McLuhan’s Mosaic is the truly refreshing and fresh engagement with McLuhan’s writing that the digital age has been waiting for.” —Linda Hutcheon, University of Toronto


Dr. Lamberti is a research professor in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literature at the University of Bologna, Italy, where she teaches American and Canadian Literature and Culture.

Tuesday, April 10, 3:30 pm-5:30 pm, Executive Dining Room, Schulich School of Business, York University

This event is generously sponsored by The Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies, The McLuhan Initiative for the Study of Multiple Literacies at Founders College, York International, and The Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies, York University.
