A Million Pictures



About a year ago, in June 2016, the JPI Heritage Plus project “A Million Pictures: Magic Lantern Slide Heritage as Artefacts in the Common European History of Learning” started and it will run until May 2018. It aims at exploring the educational use of magic lanterns in the 19th century, to help institutions holding slide collections with guidelines, if they want to digitize slides and make them available to larger audiences, and to stimulate creative reuse of the material. The project brings together researchers from Utrecht University (NL), University of Exeter (UK), University of Antwerp (BE), University of Girona (ES), University of Salamanca (ES) as well as many Associated Partners.

“A Million Pictures” organized a panel on “Projecting the Human Body: A Transmedial Perspective” at the 14th International Domitor Conference in Stockholm on “Viscera, Skin, and Physical Form: Corporeality and Early Cinema”.
