This event is part of an annual lecture series, hosted by the Harold Innis Foundation, featuring acclaimed thinkers, whose discourse echoes that of Harold Adams Innis himself. Innis was one of Canada’s original thinkers, a professor of political economy at the University Toronto, and author of seminal works on economic history, media, and communications theory. His work contributed to the foundation of what is known as the Toronto School of communications theory, and in his writings he explored the role of the media in shaping culture and society.
