Text & Image in the Long Eighteenth Century: An Everyday Spectacle

Thursday, November 29, 2018 - 2:40pm
The Enlightenment Group Symposium Series (6), Mount Royal University, Calgary, Canada
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 25, 2019


The long Eighteenth Century is the time when ocular-centric thought established itself in Western society. Images and illustrations permeated textual spaces to the point that few books were printed without illustrations. From arts to sciences via fiction and geographic literature, the eighteenth-century citizen was therefore exposed to wide array of visual and textual combinations as part of his/her everyday life.

This one-day symposium will be held at Mount Royal University, Calgary, Canada on March 8, 2019.

 For its 6th symposium, the Enlightenment Group welcomes 20-minute paper proposals engaging with:

-          Visual culture

-          Iconography
