Media@McGil is pleased to announce our 2015-2016 program of  activities, which will revolve around the theme of Art, Media and the Public Sphere, the fourth theme of our five-year Media and Democracy program.

This year, we also welcome back Professor Christine Ross as the Director of Media@McGill, after a year on sabbatical.

To kick start the year, Media@McGill has invited Professor Wendy Brown for our 2015 Beaverbrook Annual Lecture. The title of her talk is "Neoliberalism Contra Democracy: Ten Theses.” The 2015 Beaverbrook Annual Lecture will be on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 at 6 p.m. and will be given at the Faculty of Law, Moot Court, 3644 Peel Street.

More exciting and stimulating events follow. In November, 2015, we are hosting a panel entitled The Long Eighteenth Century’s Public Spheres with professors from McGill University participating.

Next February, 2016, professor and political scientist Nancy Fraser will join us for a public talk entitled “Crisis and Critique of Financialized Capitalism.”

Finally, in March, 2016 we are holding a two-day international colloquium at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal on Aisthesis and the Common: Reconfiguring the Public Sphere. An impressive roster of speakers has already been confirmed for this major event.

All events are free and open to the public. Keep visiting our website for further details.
