Old Media, New Media, Intermedia:
The Toronto Star and CFCA, 1922–1933
From: Cultural Industries.ca
in Sandra Gabriele and Paul Moore’s chapter, the question is about how old and new media interact. While their example is drawn from the arrival of radio into the newspaper business, it remains germane as an approach for us to study as new technologies—from tablets to cell phones—change, or at least challenge, the ways in which Canada’s cultural industries operate, just as radio challenged newspapers in the 1920s.
Sandra Gabriele is Assistant Professor of Communication Studies at Concordia University. A forthcoming book with Paul Moore, The Sunday Paper, explores the intermedial circulation of illustrated weekend newspapers in North America. In addition to co-editing Intersections of Media and Communications (2011) with Will Straw and Ira Wagman, her histories of journalism in Canada have appeared in Topia, Aether, and Journalism: Theory, Practice & Criticism.
