Germania in BorkbergThe workshop “Multimodal Landscapes of Mediterranean Antiquity” was supported by and held at the College of Social Sciences and Humanities of the Ruhr University Alliance, Essen on 25-27 April 2024. Several members of Imagines, including both organisers, participated in this exploratory event which catalogued and study existing and remembered imageries of ancient pasts in the city of Essen. Co-organised by Senior Fellow Marta García Morcillo (Durham University, UK) and her tandem partner Florian Freitag (University of Duisburg-Essen), this experimental project united researchers from different fields to investigate cultural artifacts and signs on site, including advertising, branding, photographs, and street art as well as permanent, ephemeral, and vanished architectural elements and recorded events that establish connections between ancient Mediterranean cultures and Essen’s modern cityscape (19th to 21st centuries). This pilot project will serve as a case study for an interactive digital resource that maps and visualises the multimodal landscapes of Mediterranean antiquity in the Ruhr metropoles as well as in other cities of the world.
