In today’s Fireside Chat we explore the ideas of Marshall McLuhan and the notion that the medium is the message – an idea that remains as thought-provoking today as it did in the 1960s.
If you are interested in reading more about McLuhan I would strongly recommend:
- Marshall McLuhan, Understanding Media (2001)
- Marshall McLuhan and Quentin Fiore, The Medium Is the Massage: An Inventory of Effects (1967)
- Benedict Anderson, Imagined Communities (1983)
- Elizabeth Eisenstein, The Printing Press as an Agent of Change, (1979)
