Visual Narratives and Illuminated Manuscripts

A session at the annual meeting of the Renaissance Society of America,
4-6 April, San Diego, California.

Drawing from the works on text and image from Visual Culture scholars, this panel aims to understand and analyze this multifaceted art form, the illuminated manuscript. All papers addressing the various aspects of the fraught and complex relationship between text and image in the illuminated manuscripts (from Medieval to the Renaissance period as well as Eastern illuminated manuscripts, i.e. Turkish, Arabic, etc.) are welcomed.

All papers from a variety of disciplines (Art History, Comparative Literature, History, Depts. of Languages & Literature, English, etc.) and approaches are encouraged. Interdisciplinary and cross-cultural approaches are especially welcome.
Please e-mail an abstract and a brief curriculum vitae to Nhora Serrano and Martine van
Elk at and as soon as possible, but no later than June 1, 2012.

This session will be sponsored by the Center for Medieval and
Renaissance Studies at California State University, Long Beach
