Images of Identity: International Symposium at the University of Zurich, 30-31 January 2015

Words and images have always been used to fashion, refashion and challenge identities. In the age of discovery, written and visual texts combined to negotiate identities of self and other; the nineteenth and twentieth centuries saw an explosion of visual technologies. In the early twenty-first century, our lives have become more permeated by multimedial texts and images than ever before.
This two-day symposium hosted by the English Department at the University of Zurich aims to explore the constitution of personal, national and cultural identities at the intersection of the verbal and the visual. It will focus on the multiple relations between identities, words and images, addressing issues such as visual culture, transmediality, iconicity, and the materialities of words and images.
The conference is primarily aimed at scholars working in the field of literary and cultural studies. However, as we believe issues of visuality can be fruitfully examined in an interdisciplinary framework, we invite contributions from different segments of the academic community.
