Call for Papers: PAMLA 2017 Annual Conference Special Session
Title of Session:
“Ekphrasis and Persuasion: The Dialectic of Eye and Mind in the Psyche of the Literary Text.”
This session will explore how history, philosophy, rhetoric and poetics interact in literary texts through the trope of ekphrasis. It will explore not only ekphraseis that advance poetic and rhetorical arguments across disciplines, but also examine the ongoing dialogue of poet, painter and thinker in our literary traditions.
