A roundtable event for Text/Image Studies PGRs within the School of Modern Languages and Cultures

The contribution of Postgraduate Research Students (PGR) to the wide realm of Text/Image Studies is an important part of the Stirling Maxwell Centre. This roundtable event aims to bring together Text/Image PGRs from within the School of Modern Languages and Cultures to share their research and ideas with each other and the wider Text/Image community.

In 10-15-minute presentations, we will hear about the work of five Text/Image PGRs:

  • Jordanna Conn: A picture spans a thousand years: Jewish graphic narratives as 'proto-comics' in pre-industrial times
  • Anaïs Delcol: Peregrination as a conquest or liberation of oneself in female travel writer’s work
  • Ciara Haverly: Emblematics of virtue: women and the emblem in the 19th century
  • Kristina Astrom: The folding of context in Mallarmé and Whistler
  • Chloe Coldwell: Memorialising absence: the visual representation of the disappeared within the family structure in post-dictatorship Argentina

Chaired by Danielle Schwertner.
