CFP: Optika 2: A Symposium on Visual Narration (Puerto Rico) (9/10/06; 1/25/07-1/26/07)

Sunday, July 9, 2006 - 1:30pm
Mary Leonard

The first Optika symposium, which took place in 2005, brought together
people from a variety of artistic, intellectual, and cultural
backgrounds and resulted in a wonderfully stimulating 2 day
conversation about the possibilities of visual narration. It also
resulted in a book on the subject soon to be published by the
University of Puerto Rico Press. When the symposium ended, everyone was
asking when Optika 2 would take place. So we are happy to announce the
second edition of Optika, and invite you to submit your proposals:

Optika 2
