Word & Image: Theory in the 21st Century

Call for Papers

International Conference
Word & Image: Theory in the 21st Century
24-26 June 2010

An international Word & Image conference will be held at the Université
de Bourgogne (Dijon, France) on 24-26 June 2010 in association with the
College of the Holy Cross (Massachusetts) , the Université
Paris-Diderot, the bilingual journal Interfaces, the Musée des
Beaux-Arts and the Musée Magnin in Dijon. We are delighted to announce
that John Dixon Hunt, Liliane Louvel and Peter Wagner will give plenary
conference addresses. The conference will focus on the current state of
the art in Word & Image theory, and it will also be an opportunity to
commemorate the recent passing of Michel Baridon - one of the founding
members of the journal in 1991.

The papers selected by the scientific committee will be published in
Interfaces, as a sequel to the 1994 issue of the review (Interfaces 5,
"La théorisation de la relation image/texte/ langage") .

This interdisciplinary event welcomes contributions from any relevant
field of research across the humanities and sciences. Papers are
invited to focus on any aspect of the relationship between word and
image during any period, but should in each case provide a clear
theoretical perspective reflecting recent research and publications in
their field.

PhD students are also invited to submit abstracts for a special
doctoriale session. It will be the opportunity for them to make a brief
presentation of their current research (10 to 15 minutes). The
abstracts and the papers can be submitted either in French or in
English. The presentations should not be longer than 30 minutes.

Deadline: please send abstracts of about 300 words (along with a short
bibliography and a short biography) to the organizing committee before
10th February 2010.
Confirmation: early March 2010

So in all distinct possibility if anything is accepted to happen in 2012 there is solitary the slimmest chance that the everybody will have ended forward of it happens.
