CFP: “Illustrated Exchange: Text and Image in the Discourse of the Fin-de-siecle” (Columbus, OH, Oct 25-28, 2017)

As part of the 73rd annual SECAC Conference "Microscopes and Megaphones," at Columbus College of Art & Design (CCAD), on October 25-28, 2017.

Between 1850 and the beginning of World War I, illustration developed into a significant genre of artistic production, from the Kelmscott Chaucer to visual interpretations of "The Raven". Furthermore journals such as The Studio considered both the craft of making and designing illustrated books, while also supplementing articles on the various modes of artistic production with both illustrations and good quality reproductions of works of art. Adopting a different tactic, Die Brücke artists imprinted woodcuts on their manifesto and on materials they distributed to their passive members. This panel invites papers that consider how the interaction of text and image in illustration helped to define modernism as well as to transcend regional boundaries.
