The Lectern

Series: Friday Evening Lecture
Date: Friday 9 March 2018
Time: 17:00
Venue: AA Lecture Hall
Running time: 71 mins

This lecture will ask if the lecture has a future? Does the physical presence of a lecturer and an audience, or indeed the physical presence of a teacher and a pupil add anything to a book, or perhaps increasingly to what is online. If it does, what?

The lecture is constructed around an interrogation of the piece of furniture which has always supported lectures at the AA: the lectern.
