Global Communication

In 1964, Marshall McLuhan observed the power of communication technologies and declared the world had become a 'global village.' Global conglomerates such as Disney and Time Warner sell blockbuster films, TV shows and games around the world, and distant wars and international sporting events are brought into our homes. Our CDMS researchers investigate the economic, political, cultural and technological dimensions of global information flows and how they can unite people as well as create economic and geopolitical divisions.
