Visual/Verbal Texts Symposium

Visual/Verbal Texts Symposium Logo

From June 25 to 27, 2013, the Centre for Research in Young People’s Texts and Cultures will host Visual/Verbal Texts, an international symposium which aims to represent and to assess the current state of research in picture books and such adjacent hybrid forms as comics and graphic novels, especially as texts for and about young people.

This symposium has been scheduled on the occasion of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the publication of Perry Nodelman‘s Words about Pictures: The Narrative Art of Children’s Picture Books by the University of Georgia Press, a book that continues to be widely cited in scholarship.

Please see the symposium program for further details.
