Call for Papers:

Word & Image

Annual Conference of the Association for the Study of New English
Literatures

University of Koblenz-Landau, Campus Koblenz, Germany, May 24-27, 2006

The simultaneous use of verbal and visual forms of representation
constitutes a major feature of anglophone literatures and cultures, but
the similarities and differences between words and images and the
parameters of their coexistence have hardly been theorised and
critically explored in depth. Post/colonial critiques often stress that
the Other transcends verbal representation, without, however, discussing
the nature of the visual representation of the Other or its relationship
to its verbal context.

CFP: Seeing Perception: Images & Texts (Germany) (1/31/06; 11/24/06-11/26/06)

Seeing Perception: Images & Texts (Universität Leipzig, Germany, 24-26
November 2006)

Over the past two decades, matters of seeing and visual perception have
garnered increasing critical attention. With good reason, the visual
has come to feature in several different disciplines as well as in
inter- or transdisciplinary perspectives (such as "visual studies" or
"visual culture"): vision can be, and has been, conceptualised as a
philosophical category, as cultural medium of expression, as instrument
and technology of visualization as well as a means of communication.
