Harold Innis and Marshall McLuhan, Revisited

Harold Innis and Marshall McLuhan, Revisited Partner(s): James Carey
School of Journalism

Access: Columbia only
Released: September 2002


The Harold Adams Innis and Marshall McLuhan MSE allows students to explore the political, social, and historical significance of these two writers as explained by Professor James Carey in his groundbreaking article from 1964. Like a multimedia critical edition, students can read the text in its entirety while benefiting from annotations of unfamiliar terms as well as original explanatory material. Excerpts from the works of Innis and McLuhan are made available at relevant moments in the Carey article. Further, an interview conducted with Professor Carey by CCNMTL's Frank Moretti in spring 2002 is made available in its entirety; and again, from relevant paragraphs in the article particular excerpts of the video interview are immediately accessible.
