Writing and Seeing:
an international conference
on literature and the visual arts

Biblioteca Almeida Garrett / Galeria do Palácio
Oporto, Portugal
23-25 October 2003

This conference will address the renewed attention obtained in
recent years by the relations
between the verbal and the visual in literature, the arts, and other
cultural practices. It will
welcome contributions focusing on specific instances of such
relations, and on the framework of
tradition within which they developed and evolved their distinct
theoretical and critical tools.
But it will also be open to studies foregrounding the critique to
which conventional barriers
between language and the iconic, and between literature and the
visual arts, have in various ways
been subject.
Its scope will be multidisciplinary: the programme aims to accommodate
participants from a broad range of fields of study – () literary
studies vs the other arts, art
history, art criticism, space and landscape studies, etc Parallel
to the conference, and as part
of the same project, an exhibition will open and be available to
conference participants and to the
general public at Galeria do Palácio (adjacent to the conference
venue). Its purpose will be to
foreground the intermedial and intersemiotic dimension in recent
Portuguese art.
Keynote speakers will include:James A.W.Heffernan (Dartmouth
College, USA); Charlotte Schoell-Glass (Universitaet Hamburg);
António Feijó (Universidade de Lisboa); José Jiménez (Universidad
Autonoma de Madrid). The organisers will welcome proposals for
20-minute papers on any of the areas mentioned above (
).
