Errol Salamon

Errol Salamon is a PhD student in communication studies at McGill University. His dissertation, funded by FQRSC and Media@McGill, is tentatively titled, “Communication Slow Death: The Labour Disputes and Transformation of the Precariat Newsworker.” He is interested in the political economy of communication and autonomist thought, particularly the labour, history, governance, and alternative media of newsworkers. In 2012, Errol co-organized the national, bilingual, SSHRC-funded conference, “Journalism Strategies” (http://journalismstrategies.ca/), bringing together newsworkers, scholars, activists, policymakers, and other people interested in creating a sustainable future for journalism in Canada. Building on this project, he is currently co-editing a book with Mike Gasher, Colette Brin, Christine Crowther, Gretchen King, and Simon Thibault. As a newsworker, he was part of the community news collective at CKUT 90.3 FM in Montreal, and has written for The McGill Daily and rabble.ca. Errol has also taught as a sessional instructor in the Department of Communication and Culture at the University of Calgary.
