Poetry in Expanded Translation II: Intersemiotic Translation—between Text & Image

8-10 November 2017, Université de Haute-Alsace, Mulhouse, France.

CFP: Multidisciplinary conference on modes of text and image translation, use and reception in or in-between literature and visual art. During the conference Lex-Icon: Treating the image as text, treating the text as image held at UHA in 2012, we asked whether it was emphatic attention to the physical substance of language (the plasticity of words) that draws the practices of authors and visual artists together today, or whether there are very different modes of representation, creation and reception engendering cultural upheavals in artistic and literary practice in verbo-visual works. We also asked whether one needs language to produce thought, to write or to describe the world. Following on from this, at the first Poetry in Expanded Translation conference held in London in April 2017 we explored in what ways rewritings texts are in and of themselves translations.
