The first Optika symposium, which took place in 2005, brought together
people from a variety of artistic, intellectual, and cultural
backgrounds and resulted in a wonderfully stimulating 2 day
conversation about the possibilities of visual narration. It also
resulted in a book on the subject soon to be published by the
University of Puerto Rico Press. When the symposium ended, everyone was
asking when Optika 2 would take place. So we are happy to announce the
second edition of Optika, and invite you to submit your proposals:

Optika 2
A Symposium on Visual Narration
University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez Campus

Thursday and Friday January 25th and 26th, 2007
