CFP: Illustrating Literary Worlds (grad) (2/27/09; (dis)junctions,
This call for papers is for a proposed panel at (dis)junctions, the
University of California, Riversideâ€™s 16th Annual Humanities Graduate
Conference, which will be held on April 3-4, 2009. This yearâ€™s theme
is â€œBrave New Worlds.â€
Expanding on that theme, this panel seeks papers that consider literary
works and their relationship to the illustrations that represent their
worlds, whether these illustrations are published with the written works,
follow them, or are created for a private, limited audience (often the
author him/herself, as is the case with many of Tolkienâ€™s Middle Earth
drawings). Possible topics include childrenâ€™s literature and
illustration, illumination, engraving, cover art, maps, created script,
the authorâ€™s own renderings of the world (perhaps in contrast to another
artistâ€™s portrayal), or any other possible manifestation of this topic.
Again, the emphasis sought is on the relationship between the written and
the visual worlds.
Please send abstracts of 200-250 words to Susana Brower at
susana.disj_at_yahoo.com by February 27, 2009. Please let me know of any
potential A/V needs; every effort will be made to accommodate you.
