WORD AND IMAGE (ASECS, March 30-April 2, 2006)

This panel seeks to investigate the interaction between verbal and visual
languages in the art and literature of eighteenth-century Europe. Approaches
may draw upon such diverse fields as art history and image theory, cultural
studies, literary theory, visual semiotics, book history and print culture.
Some possible topics include: portraits in the text, engraving, illustrated
narratives and cartography, verbal description, and film adaptations of
eighteenth-century works. The objective is to engage in a stimulating dialogue
on the mutual collaboration of these two very rich forms of expression.

The deadline for proposals (250 words) is September 15 2005. Please send
abstracts and inquiries to:
