Join us for the official launch of Phil Mackintosh’s book: Newspaper City: Toronto’s Street Surfaces and the Liberal Press, 1860-1935.
Please help friends, colleagues, and family celebrate this achievement. This is a casual drop-in with live music and delicious refreshments provided by St. Catharines’ Mahtay Cafe.
“This is a provocative and original take on the modernity of the North American city in general, and Toronto in particular. Mackintosh’s sound scholarship and command of a wide-ranging literature underpin his trenchant exposure of the contradictions of liberal modernity, alerting us, too, to the continuing clash between civic humanism and neoliberalism in the conduct of city life.”
(Richard Dennis, Professor Emeritus, University College London)
