The Lectern

This event has finished Took place on: Friday, 9th Mar 2018

This lecture will ask if the lecture has a future? Does the physical presence of a lecturer and an audience, or indeed the physical presence of a teacher and a pupil add anything to a book, or perhaps increasingly to what is online. If it does, what?

The lecture is constructed around an interrogation of the piece of furniture which has always supported lectures at the AA: the lectern.

Cost: Free of Charge
