The workshop proposed to focus on the relation between literature and its necessary relationship to its “outside”, which has recently become a central research focus in a number of disciplines: literary studies, film studies, art history, etc. The workshop adopted a transdisciplinary perspective in order to explore some of the issues raised at the intersection between literary text and image (whether moving or still). These include but are not limited to: What is the respective status of text and image? In what way does literature use images to incorporate and/or become an archive? How and why do images become text and vise-versa? What role do images play in various descriptive strate-gies? In what ways is the history of literary forms linked to that of visual culture? To what extent do literary forms of visualization mobilize other senses than sight?
This one day event brought together 3 invited international speakers, from three different disciplines, currently carrying out cutting edge research in the area of text / image relations, with PhD students also working in this area. The participating PhD students gave a short presentation on their own research in this area and received feedback on these presentations from their peers as well as from the invited speakers. The latter also gave a short “master class”.
