Global Communication

In 1964, Marshall McLuhan observed the power of communication technologies and declared the world had become a “global village”. Today, satellites, fiber-optic cables and the Internet network the globe enabling an international flow of data at the speed of light. Global conglomerates like 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. UOIT CDMS researchers investigate the economic, political, cultural and technological dimensions of global information flows and how they unite us, as well as create economic and geopolitical divisions.
