Description

Following on the work of scholars from many disciplines, including literary studies, art history, history, and book history among others, this panel seeks papers that interrogate text as image, both in its material manifestations of script, text and illumination, mise-en-page, and ordinatio, and its narratival manifestations. In particular, this panel wishes to draw together material evidence and narratival trajectories to speak to the complex relationship between material image in illumination, script, and other material instantiations and the cognitive experiences of textual imagery. We particularly invite papers that blur disciplinary boundaries and make use of research from literary studies, art history, history, paleography, and other allied disciplines. James Ensley
