Michael Edmunds Announced as Special Guest for Seminar 04

Michael Edmunds
MoM organisers are pleased to announce that the special guest for Seminar 04 will be Michael Edmunds. Edmunds had the privilege of studying under (or beside) Professor Marshall McLuhan. He went on to become the Associate Director of the McLuhan Program in Culture & Technology at the University of Toronto. He also held the position of Director of the ScotiaBank Information Commons.

In many respects Edmunds is the ultimate “insider”. He has remained at the centre of the post-McLuhan milieu in the wake of McLuhan's death. He was part of the TetraHeads, he managed the wildly influential McLuhan-L listserver (MCLUHAN-L@LISTSERV.UTORONTO.CA), and has continued, largely behind the scenes, to promote McLuhan to a global audience.
