|Professor Michael Meyer|
The paper at the English Research Seminar on Wednesday 11th March 2015 will be given by Professor Michael Meyer from the University of Koblenz. Michael's talk is entitled 'The intermedial framing of narrative fiction'. He will explore the interplay between visual illustration and verbal representation as interdependent framing devices. The examples under scrutiny (Milne, Byatt, Ackroyd) offer multiple framings and frame-breaks, provoking reflections on representation, media, and interpretation. The conclusion will address the potential of using intermedial framing in the classroom. All staff and students are welcome to the talk, which starts at 5pm in Priestman 313.
