Thirties Genres: Genre, Writing and Culture in Britain in the 1930s

'He picked up the newspaper from beside him; it was open at the women's and children's page. Jane may have had it, reading the All
Made with Remnants article . . . or John may have been enjoying the Washing Day Adventures of Some Tiny Animals. . . He turned
over . . . the Radio Programme . . . Next page. A short story . . . No he wouldn't read it. A block of advertisements filled up
the bottom half of the page. He read them with more care than he gave the news'. (Walter Brierley, Means Test Man, 1935)

Call for Papers:

Word & Image

Annual Conference of the Association for the Study of New English
Literatures

University of Koblenz-Landau, Campus Koblenz, Germany, May 24-27, 2006

The simultaneous use of verbal and visual forms of representation
constitutes a major feature of anglophone literatures and cultures, but
the similarities and differences between words and images and the
parameters of their coexistence have hardly been theorised and
critically explored in depth. Post/colonial critiques often stress that
the Other transcends verbal representation, without, however, discussing
the nature of the visual representation of the Other or its relationship
to its verbal context.
