The 2nd German-Canadian Professionals Conference in Berlin, Germany has invited MLI Managing Director Brian Lee Crowley to be keynote speaker for the program on May 27, 2011. The conference, “Global Village – Calamity or Chance?”, covers economics, politics, and visual arts. It will be part of the McLuhan in Europe 2011 // Berlin Centennial Weekend May 27 – 29, 2011 initiative and it will offer a program inspired by the Canadian media critic Marshall McLuhan.
Dr. Crowley’s keynote address will focus on the impact of globalisation in the age of economic crisis. How did Canada handle the recession? Can the Canadian strategy be called a success model which is to be transferred? What role did the media play during the crisis and when did it officially announce its end?
