Symposium: The Artist and the Writer (a Romantic Illustration Network event) (11/29/2014)

cropped-banner4The Artist and the Writer (a Romantic Illustration Network event)
Institute of English Studies, University of London, Senate House
November 29, 2014, 10am - 5pm

Speakers will include:
Lynn Shepherd (Richardson scholar and novelist), Tim Fulford (DeMontfort), Sandro Jung (Ghent); Sophie Thomas (Ryerson, Canada); Mary L. Shannon (Roehampton).

Part of the activities of the Romantic Illustration Network (see website) this symposium will take a fresh look at the 'communication-circuit' between artists, writers and publishers. Some of the themes covered might be: the extent to which illustrations defined a new reading experience; the relations between large and small images; the gendering of the illustration 'gaze'; colour versus black and white; the role of the illustration in shaping a national canon of both literature and art; the transition from Romantic to Victorian illustration, and from elite metal to popular wood engraving.

Registration required: details and the full programme will appear here soon: http://www.ies.sas.ac.uk/ies-conferences/ArtistWriter

Supported by the British Association for Victorian Studies (BAVS): http://www.bavs.ac.uk/ and the University of Roehampton.
