Berlin, 8th November 2016, 06:15pm.: a workshop conversation with Philip Ajouri, Ursula Kundert and Carsten Rohde, associates at the MWW research project "text and frame", as part of the series "The Materiality of what is written – Libraries and Research in Conversation" of the Staatsbibliothek zu Berllin.
The lecture deals with the effect of material frames for the presentation of canonical works. Stimulating systematic and media history related discussions, it decribes examples of media constellations by contrasting materials, genres, contexts of production and date. For instance, was the cover of 15th century northern German psalms just as important and potent as that of 19th century Faust medialisations or of early 20th century Insel-Verlag volumes? What historical changes in media correspond with the various frames? What frames surprisingly persist across all kinds of factors?
The lecture will take place in the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, Haus Unter den Linden, Entrance: Dorotheenstraße 27, 10117 Berlin. The meeting point is the rotunda at the entrance. Entry is free of charge.
