Poetry in Expanded Translation II:
Intersemiotic Translation—Between Text & Image
International interdisciplinary conference
8 – 10 November 2017
Université de Haute-Alsace, Mulhouse, France.
Deadline for abstracts 25/08/17
Poetry in Expanded Translation II: Between Text and Image will consider the relationship between poetry and visual texts as a form of translation. It will also explore the place of language within visual works as poetic discourse and investigate the reception of poetry and visual art across linguistic boundaries. Transposition will therefore be examined alongside translation as a means of exploring interlingual and intersemiotic crossovers. These will include sound poetry’s transformation into written score, concrete or visual poetry written across languages, and literary work transformed into visual art works. Reception of verbo-visual translation in and out of book formats will be a central focus.
