Transtechnology Research Seminar Series 2010/11

Reinstating the Visual: Aby Warburg’s Mnemosyne Atlas

The 2010/11 Transtechnology Research Seminar Series ‘Reinstating the Visual: Aby Warburg’s Mnemosyne Atlas’ began in October 2010. It follows on from the previous two series ‘Realism and its Discontents’ and ‘Technology, Mind and Contingency: Matter, Models and Metaphors’.

Each seminar will focus on a single panel of Warburg’s Mnemosyne Atlas and be led by researchers at Transtechnology Research. Each seminar leader will examine one selected image panel in relation to their ongoing research. In advance of each seminar a copy of the relevant Mnemosyne panel together with an abstract will be posted on the Transtechnology website and participants are expected to familiarise themselves with the context and detail of the particular panel and the background reading relevant to the seminar.
