Visual and Media Arts Professor Thomas Cooper received the Medium and the Light Award this past weekend, September 21–23, at the Marshall McLuhan Conference held at the University of Toronto.
Howard R. Engel, co-director of the Marshall McLuhan Initiative, presented the award to Cooper on behalf of the Engel Family Fund and Richard Osicki, director of the Marshall McLuhan Initiative.
The Medium and the Light Award is named after Marshall McLuhan’s book (edited by his son, Eric McLuhan). The award is given to a person, group, or organization that has made a significant contribution to religious communication inspired by observations and notions put forward by McLuhan.
