SMC One: The McLuhan Seminar in Creativity and Technology

Offered for the first time in 2018-2019, St. Mike’s McLuhan Seminar is an exploration of the relationship between creativity and technology.
Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980), one of the most charismatic and wide-ranging thinkers of the 20th century, taught at St. Mike’s from 1946 until his death in 1980.

The Seminar is inspired by McLuhan’s innovative thinking. First-year students will explore how the humanities relate to other fields of thought in addressing the individual, social, and cultural experiences and effects of technological innovation.

University of St. Michael’s College Professor Paolo Granata, an expert on McLuhan’s work, will teach the course, which also includes a one-week international learning experience in Silicon Valley, California, during the Winter Reading Week.

Scholarships will be awarded to successful applicants.
