A One-Day Symposium
Tuesday, 1 November 2016, 11.00–18.30
Keynote Speaker: Michaela Mahlberg (University of Birmingham)
Cardiff University’s Digital Cultures Network is delighted to announce its first Symposium on Word, Image and the Digital. Word and image, and the interplay between them, remain under explored and under-theorised in the digital humanities, despite the creation of pioneering digital archives including The William Blake Archive, the Rossetti Archive and The Illustration Archive. There is a sense, however, in which the digital is not only ‘graphical’ (as Johanna Drucker reminds us), but also a space where the visual and textual are in constant dialogue.
Registration is free for delegates but places are limited. The deadline for registration is midday, 28 October 2016.
Provisional Programme: Speaker names and titles will be confirmed shortly.
