Call For Papers â€" Edited Collection:
Telling Tales: Visual Design and Narrative in Contemporary Culture

By identifying an innovative and neglected area of research, this potential
edited collection proposes to bring together academic works, which seek to
reveal and analyse hidden and implicit narratives within a design context.
>From the world of high fashion to the thrill of the theme park, this book will
explore the notion of alternative narratives embodied within an everyday lived
 experience of design, radically forging together the disparate spheres of
screen and visual studies with those of art and design.

Making Books, Shaping Readers

The First International Making Books, Shaping Readers Conference
University College, Cork, April 18th - 20th 2007
http://www.ucc.ie/en/mbsr

Theme: "Making an Audience"

This conference encourages a broad interpretation of the notion of an
audience in keeping with the etymology of the word. (The term audience,
which derives from the Latin audenita, "a hearing, listening", from awis,
"to perceive physically, to grasp", and from the nineteenth century
transformation of the sense of the word to "readers of a book", reflects the
way in which technologies of the word have changed throughout history, from
oral, to manuscript, to print).
