WP4: Transnational Perspectives

This WP looks at the magic lantern in Belgium from a transnational perspective. It will study the cultural appropriation in Belgium of slides produced elsewhere and provide a comparative study with the Netherlands in two Postdoc projects. The PhD project will focus on the role of the lantern as a communication medium in relation to the Belgian colonies, and as a medium for knowledge transfer in the field of economic geography, providing by means of illustrated lectures models from abroad to be learned from.
