Studies in Culture and Communication
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Explorations was the crucible in which McLuhan and Carpenter created media studies. Combining Carpenter's anthropological interests with McLuhan's knowledge of rhetoric, they produced a unique platform for understanding biomediation. These eight issues of Explorations will stagger the reader with their compelling insights and with their range of contributors, from Jorge Luis Borges to Jaqueline Tyrwhitt."
--Richard Cavell, University of British Columbia; author of McLuhan in Space: A Cultural Geography (2002) and Remediating McLuhan (forthcoming)
"Under the editorship of Marshall McLuhan and Edmund Carpenter, Explorations was a unique interdisciplinary journal bringing together key luminaries from early Canadian media studies. This republication is a key milestone in our understanding of the roots of communications theory."
--Will Straw, Director, McGill Institute for the Study of Canada
