CFP: [Poetry] Visual and Verbal Intersections

full name / name of organization: 
Slavica Grujicic

7-10 May 2009 St. John's University in Manhattan, NY. 2009
American Association of Italian Studies (AAIS) Annual Conference.

The aim of this session is to explore the intersection between verbal and
visual languages as expressed in but not limited to literary works in
order to engage in a dialogue on the mutual collaboration between the word
and the image. Possible topics may include ekphrastic writing, novels that
integrate images as part of the narration, iconicity, photography,
futurism, illustrated narratives (graphic novels and comics included).
Word & Image act not only as two kinds of expression but also as two modes
of narration. Different approaches may include image theories, visual
semiotics, cultural studies, literary theory, etc.

Please submit a title, 200 words abstract, and AV equipment needs by Jan.
16, 2009.

Organizer: Slavica Grujicic, University of Toronto
