Re-Touching McLuhan - The Medium is the Massage,
27-29 May 2011, Berlin.
Dr. Lorenz Engell is a professor of media philosophy at the Bauhaus University Weimar. Since 2008 he has been the Co-Director of the International Research Institute for Cultural Technologies and Media Philosophy (IKKM, Weimar). Lorenz Engell is a leading figure in the first ‘generation’ of academic researchers who recognized media studies as an independent field within the humanities. His focus on film and television culture formed a major point of linkage German academia between McLuhan’s work and Niklas Luhmann’s systems theory.
