Transmediale Marshall McLuhan Lecture with Sarah Sharma

This year’s Marshall McLuhan Lecture is delivered at the Embassy of Canada on 31 January 2017 by Sarah Sharma, Associate Professor and incoming Director of the McLuhan Program in Culture and Technology at the University of Toronto. Sharma has focused on the intersectional politics of time, class, gender, and race in her work, which includes the award-winning 2014 book In the Meantime.Temporality and Cultural Politics, published by Duke University Press. Her recent research analyzes the male fantasy of exit as it manifests in nationalist movements, the omnipresent drive towards automation, and the concept of escaping work. In her talk, Sharma asks if a “feminist exit movement” can be established, wondering who will pick up the pieces when the robots leave and there is no where left to go?
