CFP: [20th] Visual & Verbal Intersections

full name / name of organization: 
Slavica Grujicic


The aim of this session is to explore the intersection between verbal and
visual languages as expressed in but not limited to literary works in
order to engage in a dialogue on the mutual collaboration between the
word and the image. Possible topics may include ekphrastic writing,
novels that integrate images as part of the narration, iconicity,
photography, futurism, illustrated narratives (graphic novels and comics
included). Word & Image act not only as two kinds of expression but also
as two modes of narration. Different approaches may include image
theories, visual semiotics, cultural studies, literary theory, etc.

Please submit a 200 words abstract & any audiovisual needs by Jan. 2, 2009

Organizer: Slavica Grujicic, University of Toronto
