Illustrated Texts: "Between High and Low: Exploring the Boundaries
of the Illustrated Text"
>From medieval illuminated manuscripts to today's graphic novels, the
position of the illustrated text has alternated between elite and
popular culture, high and low art. This panel invites papers that
explore this flux, addressing questions of medium, genre, aesthetics and
the evolution of illustrated texts, including their role and influence
on both high and low art. Please send abstracts of 250 words by March 31
to Keri A. Berg, Indiana State University, Dept. of Langugages,
