A number of scholars from the Department of Art History and Communication Studies (AHCS) at McGill University have participated in workshops at the Centre for Research on Intermediality (CRI) at the Université de Montréal. The CRI, founded in 1996, is an unique research centre that explores the rapidly changing relationships between old and new media.
The increased involvement of McGill faculty members at the CRI has been a natural evolution over the past decade. Many members joined or participated in CRI activities upon arrival at McGill. As Dr. Darin Barney, Canada Research Chair in Technology and Citizenship, says “I expect these involvements will ebb and flow over time”.
