Word and Image: Pacific Northwest Renaissance Conference

April 24-25, 1998

Western Washington University
Bellingham, Washington

The theme "Word and Image" is intended to be interpreted very broadly to
include considerations of iconography, film, religious images,
illustration, maps, set design, costume, painting and other fine arts,
descriptions of images, the presentation of manuscripts, documents,
books, hypertext, etc.  We also welcome papers addressed to the wedding
of words and images in the teaching of Renaissance texts.  The PNRC is
an interdisciplinary conference.

Plenary Speakers:

Huston Diehl, University of Iowa,
"Reforming Spectacle: Visual Regimes and Disciplinary Strategies in
Early Modern England"


Susan Karant-Nunn, Portland State University,
"Not Like the Unreasoning Beasts: The Rhetorical Separation of Humans
and Animals in Sixteenth-Century Germany"

Selected papers will be considered for publication in *Studies in
Iconography*, a refereed journal supported in part by the English
Department at Western.

Located on the coast about 90 miles north of Seattle and 50 miles south
of Vancouver, B.C.,  Bellingham is surrounded by evergreen forests,
saltwater coves, mountain-fed lakes, and snowcapped peaks.  A city of
60,000 residents, Bellingham preserves a mix of urban and rural
activity.  Western Washington University is situated on hills above the
city, overlooking Bellingham Bay with views of the San Juan Islands and
the Cascade mountain range.  Bellingham International Airport offers ten
arrivals and ten departures daily, or one may fly into Seattle's SeaTac
Airport and take a convenient shuttle to Bellingham.

Please submit a one-page abstract of your paper by January 10, 1998, to:

Marc Geisler
Department of English
Western Washington University
