CRADLED IN CARICATURE : a multidisciplinary event
Friday 27 April 2012, COLT3, University of Kent, Canterbury
This one-day event will approach the notion of ‘caricature’ in its broadest sense, using it as a jumping-off point for discussions on exaggeration, stereotyping, representation, and characterisation.
Cradled in Caricature welcomes contributions (in the form of papers, organised workshops and roundtable discussions, to readings, posters, films or short performance pieces) from scholars working in all disciplines. In order to encourage an open and fluid discussion, proposed contributions may take a variety of formats – from traditional.
Attendance at Cradled in Caricature is free of charge. Interested contributors and delegates should download an application form cradledincaricature.wordpress.com, and contributors must return completed forms and abstracts (circa 300 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 3 March 2012.
