MAGIC LANTERNS AND COLONIAL INSTRUCTION

24.01


Dans le cadre de: Aphasia, B-magic


Magic Lanterns and Colonial Instruction Lecture by Gabrielle Moser

Between 1902 and 1945 the British government’s Colonial Office Visual Instruction Committee (COVIC) distributed a series of lantern slide lectures around the British Empire. From Canada to Hong Kong, and the West Indies to Australia, the lectures were shown to school children to teach them what it meant to look –and to feel- like a citizen of the Empire. During this lecture, Gabrielle Moser will examine how the magic lantern played a central role in creating ideas of citizenship of the British Empire. She will discuss how it was possible for citizenship to become a photographable and teachable subject and how, in turn, spectators used the COVIC photographs for protest and resistance.
