CALL FOR PAPERS
Word and Image: Pacific Northwest Renaissance Conference
Date: April 24-25, 1988
Place: Western Washington University
Bellingham, Washington USA
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 to be announced.
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.
Please submit a one-page abstract of your paper by January 10, 1998, to:
Department of English
Western Washington University
Bellingham, WA 98225
Proposals for panels are also welcome and should include, in addition to
the abstracts, a 100-word statement of intent from the organizer, as
well as the addresses and emails of all participants.
Selection/notification will be sent by February 16, 1998.
