Visual Representations of Scholarly Work

INTERSECTIONS OF TEXT, IMAGE, AND RESEARCH
SAMLA welcomes proposals of representations of scholarly work that serve to explicate a researched topic and expand understanding through visual design and incorporation of visual elements and graphics. Proposals for this session should explain how research will manifest itself in the presentation. The presentation may be multimedia or a poster display. Limited technology may be available for multimedia/multimodal works.

While this form of presentation is new in the study of literature, composition/rhetoric, and linguistics, the Program Committee believes this method will create new opportunities for discussions about literature and language and expand our understanding of scholarly research. Presentations that focus on the special topic of the conference, "Cultures, Contexts, Images, Texts: Making Meaning in Print, Digital, and Networked Worlds" are particularly encouraged.

By September 28th, 2013, please submit a brief description of the project and visual design to the SAMLA office at samla@gsu.edu.
