New Explorations journal is a revival of the journal Explorations: Studies in Culture and Communication, created in 1953 by Marshall McLuhan and Ted Carpenter.

New Explorations reaffirms and continues the theoretical perspectives of Explorations, which so profoundly influenced the Toronto School of Communication and media studies worldwide.

Just as the first Explorations probed the emergent media technologies of  McLuhan’s “electric age” in the latter 20th century; New Explorations continues that voyage of discovery into the digital age of our new millennium.
