Northeast Modern Language Association
Boston, MA March 21-24, 2013

This panel considers the interplay between word and image in works of literature, or in works that defy categorization as either fiction or nonfiction. How does photography function as an "effet de réel" in works by André Breton or W. G. Sebald, for example? How do ekphrastic texts function in relation to an absent visual "other"? Please send 300-word abstracts to Gillian Pierce (gpierce@bu.edu)
