6:00pm - 6:50pm

In this episode we interview Dr. Richard Cavell, a professor in UBC’s Department of English and co-founder of the Bachelor of Media Studies (BMS) Program. We start off with Dr. Cavell by discussing what exactly the field of media studies is, the role which Marshall McLuhan played in making it, and how the BMS program at UBC is structured. We also delve further into the field of media studies, and how it has further developed in recent times as technology has evolved, and how future developments might change media.
