Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts erfreuten sich öffentliche Lichtbildvorträge als Mittel der Belehrung und Agitation großer Beliebtheit. Mutterland dieser Medieninszenierung ist Großbritannien, wo eine eigene Wirtschaftsbranche mit Produktionsfirmen, Vertriebsstrukturen und kommerziellen wie nichtkommerziellen Anbietern von unterhaltsamen Shows und lehrreichen Vorführungen entstand. In britischen Groß- und Mittelstädten sind lantern lectures (Lichtbildervorträge) ein fester Bestandteil des Angebots öffentlicher Bildungsveranstaltungen. Soziale Organisationen, die in der Armenfürsorge und Armutsprävention tätig sind, setzen Projektionsaufführungen gezielt zur Propagierung ihrer Ziele, zur Mitgliederwerbung und zum Spendensammeln ein. Der Reiz dieses neuen Mediums wurde noch gesteigert mit festlichen Umzügen und multisensorischen Darbietungen wie der Kostümierung der Vortragenden und Operateure oder der Verabreichung von Speisen und Getränken nebst gemeinsamen Singen. Als "Great Gun", als großartige "Bilderkanone" (S. 291) zur Bekämpfung von Armut bzw. der durch Armut drohenden ,Sünde' bewährte sich der bildwerfende Projektor also nicht nur über die projizierten Bilder, sondern ganz wesentlich im szenischen Verbund mit sozialen Praktiken wie Umzügen, Gottesdiensten, Speisungen und gemeinsamem Singen. Die Autorin untersucht diese Medienpraktik am Beispiel von zwei christlichen Organisationen der Temperenzbewegung (United Kingdom Band of Hope Union und Church of England Temperance Society), drei Organisationen christlicher Mission und Unterweisung (Sunday School Union, Church Army, Salvation Army) sowie zwei säkulare sozialpolitische Organisation (Co-operative Movement und Clarion Movement). Sie leistet damit Pionierarbeit bei der Erforschung eines bisher wenig beachteten visuellen Massenmediums.
