The Faculty of Information at the University of Toronto is actively looking for Phd applicants for our new PhD concentration in Media, Technology, and Culture.  We have funded spots available.  Please note that our deadline for application is January 15.  As this concentration has just gone through governance, not all of the details are available online.

Here are the application details:


The PhD concentration in Media, Technology, and Culture places special emphasis on a materialist approaches to information technologies where understanding the technological underpinnings that have always affected how media have and will be designed, developed and culturally appropriated, are central concerns. This approach draws on a rich history of theoretical influences and methodological frameworks from humanistic and social scientific perspectives. The interdisciplinary methods taught draw on historical, critical theoretical, human-interactionist, sociological, political economic, and psychological modes of inquiry.

The new curriculum will add two courses:

INF3009H Theory and History of Media Technology
INF3011H Power, Media and Technology

The program will also be working with the McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology to expand research possibilities and intellectual activities for PhD students.
