Writing (In) Images (Madison, 22-24 Sep 05)

The 38th Annual Wisconsin Workshop


September 22-24, 2005

Pyle Center

The relationship (or rather, the extensive range of relationships) between
image and text has a long, varied, and not infrequently contentious
history, as documented by its investigation within a range of rhetorical,
literary, cultural, semiotic, art-historical, media-oriented,
philosophical, anthropological, and historical paradigms. The September
2005 Wisconsin Workshop will focus attention on two specific aspects of
the intersection of images and texts: images as a subcategory of writing,
and forms of writing that appear as, in, or as part of images.
