Reinstating the Visual

The second Transtechnology Research Reader, draws together the intellectual energies and insights generated by the seminar series in 2010/11 and gathers them up in the form of a boxed collection of ‘pamphlets’. The particular form of the Reader this time around not only responds to a perceived distinction between the needs of the individual author and the virtues of the dynamics of the collective context, but also emerges from the very core of our thinking during the 2010/11 seminar series.

The programme for 2010/11 ran under the title ‘Reinstating the Visual: Aby Warburg’s Mnemosyne Atlas’. Each monthly seminar, led by individuals represented here, used the shared focus of a single panel of Warburg’s Mnemosyne Atlas as a trigger for a presentation of their own research. The intention was to use the visual to stimulate and open up a transdisciplinary critique of all of our individual research projects: to facilitate multiple perspectives identifying new topics and concerns while retaining the direction and rigour of the primary research question.
