This chapter considers the potential of multi-display learning spaces for mediating art-historical discourse in the context of visual culture studies and postmodern iconology. The discussion examines contemporary 'display ecologies' and their use for knowledge production and presents a comparison to lantern-slide projection and other historical display techniques; it probes the relevance of technological tools for presenting, analyzing and interpreting and their affordances regarding audience participation and construction of a shared analytical experience based on valuing and nurturing multiple perspectives. The discussion is based on an investigation into the use of presentation technologies in ancient art-historical graduate education and emphasizes how technological mediation, analytical method and knowledge production are closely intertwined within disciplinary practice.
