A Monday Night Seminar 

Join us in exploring gender in popular culture and the gaming community. With special guests Florence M. Chee (Loyola University Chicago), in conversation with Nicholas Taylor (North Carolina State University) and Emily Flynn-Jones. Details and registration here

The “Monday Night Seminar” carries on the tradition of Marshall McLuhan’s public seminars at the University of Toronto. This year’s thematic is MsUnderstanding Media. All seminars take place from 6 – 8pm within the same intimate Coach House setting where McLuhan once held court. In this up-close and personal environment, a range of thinkers – academics, activists, scientists, artists, designers and planners – will explore digital culture from a feminist perspective.

The Monday Night Seminars are designed to challenge prevailing cultural notions about technology and provoke new insight on the possibilities for a more equitable technological future. Join us!
