Registration Open: ‘The Artist and the Writer’ (a Romantic Illustration Network event) 29 November 2014, Senate House

10am – 5pm
Institute of English Studies, University of London

Supported by the British Association for Victorian Studies (BAVS) and the University of Roehampton.

Part of the activities of the Romantic Illustration Network<;, this symposium will take a fresh look at the ‘communication-circuit’ between artists, writers and publishers. Some of the themes covered might be: the extent to which illustrations defined a new reading experience; the relations between large and small images; the gendering of the illustration ‘gaze’; colour versus black and white; the role of the illustration in shaping a national canon of both literature and art; the transition from Romantic to Victorian illustration, and from elite metal to popular wood engraving.

Speakers will include:

Lynn Shepherd (Richardson scholar and novelist), Tim Fulford (De Montfort), Sandro Jung (Ghent); Sophie Thomas (Ryerson, Canada); Mary L. Shannon (Roehampton).

Registration required: details and the full programme will appear here soon:

We look forward to seeing you in November.
