The Marshall McLuhan Seminar Room, Rogers Communication Centre, Ryerson University, Toronto

08Jul14

Ryerson University used the occasion of the recent Media Ecology Association Convention (June 19-22) to publically commemorate their recently created Marshall McLuhan Seminar Room in their Rogers Communication Centre (RCC 202).  The room was named in honour of Marshall McLuhan’s association with Ryerson, which was known as Ryerson Institute of Technology when McLuhan knew it in the 1960s and ’70s. It was renamed Ryerson University in 2001. The ribbon cutting was done by Eric McLuhan, after welcoming comments by Academic Vice Provost Chris Evans, Dean Gerd Hauck and Emeritus Professor Donald Gillies (a onetime student of McLuhan). There will be more on Marshall McLuhan’s association with Ryerson in a later posting on this blog……….Alex

Here are some photographs of the Marshall McLuhan Seminar Room. Thanks to Sal Greco of Ryerson for providing them.
