The recipient of the third annual Medium and Light Award, in recognition of the religious dimensions of the life and work of Marshall McLuhan, will be presented on Thursday, October 24 in Toronto.

Dr. Eric McLuhan, the award winning and internationally known lecturer and author on communications and media ecology will receive this award on Thursday, October 24 during the 50th Anniversary of the Opening of McLuhan’s Centre for Culture & Technology, University of Toronto.

The Award is given annually by The Marshall McLuhan Initiative at St Paul’s College, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada.

The inaugural award, in 2011, was presented to the late Father Pierre Babin, OMI (1925-2012), in Lyons, France. The unique Medium and Light obelisk statuette representing the award was unveiled by Dr. Eric McLuhan during Toronto’s McLuhan Centenary celebrations that summer. It was designed by The Initiative in collaboration with Matthew McMillan of Prairie Stained Glass, Winnipeg.

Last year’s award was presented to Dr. Thomas W. Cooper, the distinguished professor of communications at Emerson College in Boston during the international conference “McLuhan: Social Media Between Faith and Culture” held at the University of St. Michael’s College in the University of Toronto.
