The theorizing Visual Art & Design (tVAD) Research Group would like to invite delegates from art and design history, literary criticism and theory, material culture, popular culture, visual and cultural studies to register for an exciting, inter-disciplinary conference exploring the relationships between text, narrative and image on Monday, September 12th, 2005. Our conference venue can accommodate up to two hundred delegates, and there are still spaces available, so please register as soon as possible.
We are pleased to announce Dr. Roger Sabin of Central St. Martins College of Art & Design as keynote speaker to provide thoughtful insights about how comic art brings together text, narrative and image directly in diverse ways, sometimes at odds with existing chronologies of the development of visual culture. His paper will provide an intellectual framework for the day’s lively analysis, discussions, and audience participation. An international peer-reviewed jury has chosen eighteen international speakers to contribute twenty-five minute papers in six panels, with themes ranging from the subtextual language of flowers to political caricature in Quebec. For a full view of the conference programme, please visit the web site at http://www.art-design.herts.ac.uk/ocs/index.php Art historians, design historians, material culturalists, practitioners of cultural or visual studies and others are invited as delegates to reflect on their sources, the issues mobilised by articulating images and objects with language, and the ways in which their communication conditions understanding of cultural artefacts. Show & Tell: Relationships between Text, Narrative and Image is the first conference in a biennial series. Please join us at the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield for what promises to be an exciting and intellectually stimulating conference!
