Illustrated Texts. From the medieval illuminated manuscript to the postmodern graphic novel, text and image have enjoyed a close partnership. This session encourages papers exploring the multifaceted and complex means by which illustrations perform interpretive work in supporting, informing, challenging, or undermining textual claims. Alternatively, papers could interpret "illustrated text" broadly and consider the process of "reading” images, say, in medieval Books of Days, a cathedral's sculptural program, William Hogarth's series, cartoons or advertisements, video games, or the tattooed words comprising Shelley Jackson's Skin. Please send a 200-word abstract to Tammy Durant (tammy.durant_at_metrostate.edu), Metropolitan State Univ., by April 16, 2007.
