Live stream and Chat
Welcome to the live stream of the Re-Touching McLuhan – The Medium is the Massage conference.
The stream will go live on Friday the 27th of May at 18:00* with the keynote presentation by Prof Richard Cavell. We will continue on Saturday morning at 10:30 with introductions by Stephen Kovats, Dieter Daniels and Christopher Salter, followed by presentations from Martina Leeker, Claus Pias, Katja Kwastek, Lorenz Engell, Michael Darroch, Janine Marchessault and Dieter Daniels. Each presentation will run for about 35 mins and will be followed by discussion.
Christopher Salter will be moderating the conference and is keen to make all of you feel involved in the proceedings. We encourage you to participate actively in this conference and engage in discussions with others online. If you would like to pose questions to the speakers, please feel free, and I shall do my best to get them to respond. Please note that we aim to transcribe some of your discussions and use them in a future publication on the McLuhan Centennial celebrations.
