Gary Genosko


Faculty of Social Science and Humanities

Gary Genosko studied philosophy, art and environment at University of Toronto, University of Alberta and York University, before receiving his doctorate in Social and Political Thought at York in 1992. He has published extensively on Continental thought, specializing in the work of Jean Baudrillard and FĂ©lix Guattari. He has published monographs on communication modelling, administrative surveillance, critical semiotics, and the lives of scholarly journals. His recent research continues his expertise in technoculture (he held a 10-year Canada Research Chair in Technoculture from 2002-12), and focuses on whistleblowing and snitching. His writing on the Toronto School of communication is currently oriented toward the neglected contributions of exhibition designer and medium theorist Harley Parker.
