Brepols Publishers and B-magic proudly present a new book series ‘Media Performance Histories’ as part of the Techne collection: Knowledge, Technique, and Material Culture.

Media Performance Histories focuses on the intersections between media developments and performative culture since the early nineteenth century. The series explores the ways in which cultural change, new forms of knowledge, science and technology were turned into modern spectacles that addressed different audiences and produced different modes of reception. 

During the B-magic conference, we will launch the first volumes on the magic lantern, edited by B-magic members Sabine Lenk, Natalija Majsova (Faith in a Beam of Light); and Nelleke Teughels and Kaat Wils (Learning with Light & Shadows) respectively.
