Algorithms and Public Discourse
In collaboration with Mozilla Foundation
Friday, January 18th, 6:00 PM
366 Adelaide St W Suite 500, Toronto
For this Salon, we have teamed up with the Mozilla Foundation to focus on the way cultural algorithms affect public discourse in a hyper-connected society.
Presented by the St. Michael’s College at the University of Toornto - the McLuhan's intellectual home in the University of Toronto - and its popular Book & Media Studies program, in conjunction with several high-level academic and cultural institutions, a new series of McLuhan Salons takes place from September 2018 to April 2019 in different dynamic city locations further dissolving the boundaries of the university and the city in bringing the multi-disciplinary multi-practice approaches to bear made famous by Marshall McLuhan.
The McLuhan Salon series is generously supported by the William and Nona Heaslip Foundation.
The event is free and open to the public.

About the McLuhan Salons: Inspired by the innovative thinking of Marshall McLuhan, the Salons series is committed to make McLuhan’s ideas step out of the university and into the city, to better understand who we are, what matters to us, and where we might be going in a networked and rapidly changing world.
