Material Worlds – The Virtual Salon at IMAREAL
Materielle Welten – Der virtuelle Salon am IMAREAL
As of late, the IMAREAL offers a virtual venue to enhance communication on material culture: the Virtual Salon. In the aftermath of the Coronavirus pandemic, we wanted to offer an online lecture series in order to broaden the opportunities of scholars to exchange new ideas on questions of material culture without having to travel around.
The single lectures are highly interactive, offering the chance to discuss ideas and hypotheses either directly after the talk or at individual ‘coffee tables’ in a breakout room on wonder.me. Every participant may attend one or more coffee tables according to their personal preferences and the time they are willing to spend in the salon. Filled wineglasses or coffee cups welcome!
