VISUAL AND VERBAL INTERSECTIONS
7-10 May 2009 St. John's University in Manhattan, NY. 2009 American Association of Italian Studies (AAIS) Annual Conference.
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 title, 200 words abstract, and AV equipment needs by Jan. 15, 2009.
