Robert Browning's "My Last Duchess," W.H. Auden's "Musee des Beaux Arts," Tracy Chevalier's "Girl with a Pearl Earring," even Dan Brown's "The Davinci Code" . . . All of these narratives use art and artists. This panel examines how texts, TV, and film utilize visual art and artists. Approaches from all critical angles are welcome for 10-15 minute presentations at the annual conference of the New Jersey College English Assocation, on March 26, 2011 at Seton Hall University.

For consideration, please send 250-300 word proposals and a short bio (100 words; no cvs needed) by January 2nd to Jan Stahl, Borough of Manhattan Community College/City University of New York.
