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 conference 'Technologies of Memory in the Arts' focuses on art as a
cultural and technological practice to process and construct the past in
the present. Central questions to this conference are: How do art and
artistic practices function as technologies of memory? How are cultural
artefacts implicated in complex processes of remembering and forgetting, of
recollecting and disremembering, of amnesia and anamnesia?
