    Description

    In this lecture we will trace the multi-facetted and productive connection between literary texts and images in Modern English Literature. Focusing on examples dating from the 19th century to the present day, we will explore the numerous interactions that have defined text-image relationships. Based on theoretical frameworks provided by intermediality and media studies, we will analyze a wide variety of phenomena, such as ekphrasis, typographical experiments (e.g., pattern poems) and media combination. In addition, we will also study broader topics such as realism, modes of description or the relationship between literature and photography, for example. Thus, the specific text-image encounters we discuss will be placed within their historical and cultural contexts.

    Training objectives
    • Students can give accounts of the diverse relationships between literature and visual media such as paintings or photographs.
    • Students can relate specific, media-bound aspects of literary texts to their historical and cultural contexts.
    • Students can identify and describe central theoretical concepts and approaches and apply these to literary texts.
