> PICTURING LANGUAGE: THE ART BOOK TRADITION IN TWENTIETH-CENTURY EUROPE
> 
> A one-day colloquium to be held on  Friday, 5th June, 2009, 10 a.m. –  
> 
> 5.30 p.m. at The University of Kent, Canterbury, United Kingdom
> 
> This one-day colloquium explores the relationship between poetry and  
> 
> illustration in the context of the art book tradition in Europe from  
> 
> the early decades of the twentieth century to the 1960s. Particular  
> consideration will be given to the ways in which illustration  
> functions as a form of interpretation that gives rise to new ‘texts’  
> 
> that support or challenge the meaning of the original works.
> 
> By focusing on different techniques of illustration, the use of  
> language to articulate the form and texture of painting and  
> sculpture, and the transformation of poetry itself into a form of  
> visual art, the colloquium seeks to challenge and redefine the  
> practices of reading and interpreting poetic language.
> 
> The themes of the colloquium will be of interest to those engaged in  
> 
> the study of literature, art history, aesthetics and book history.
