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.

*Extended Deadline for Abstracts: January 30th, 2006*

Due to the nature of cultural production, both academic and creative,
it is inevitable that particular texts, objects, subjects, cultures,
and concepts will be marginalized or excluded, giving a confusing and
often contradictory cultural landscape to a coherence that is abstract
and problematic. How might we account for the remnants and remainders
that are scattered about our fields of inquiry? How might we begin to
reconceptualize these grounds?
