In light of the fact that Texas is preparing for the
impact of hurricane Rita, and in consideration of the
fact that Texas A&M University will be officially
closed on Friday, 23 September, we are extending the
deadline on our call for papers for the conference "A
Thousand Words: Visual Culture and the Humanities."
The new deadline is Monday, October 10, 2005. The call
for papers is as follows:

The Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities
Research invites abstracts that address the
relationship of visual culture to other forms of human
expression and thought. Presentations may address
aspects of image production and image reception in the
humanities, whether the image be printed, projected,
digitized, rendered artistically, imagined, or
destroyed. Topics may include exploration of pictorial
as opposed to written or oral expression; the ways in
which images may fill interstices in language, music,
and thought; the centrality of different forms of
picture making in human history, society, and culture.
We encourage papers that range across the spectrum
from detailed case studies to theoretical syntheses.
The Glasscock Center particularly encourages proposals
that will appeal to an interdisciplinary humanities
audience. Abstracts of up to 500 words should be sent,
along with a 2-page cv, to the following address by
Monday, 10 October 2005:

Melanie Hawthorne
Department of European and Classical Languages and
Texas A&M University
