Tracing types

Comparative analyses of nineteenth-century sketches

*  *  *

Publié le mardi 31 mai 2016 par Céline Guilleux

Résumé

A new wave of scholarship has emerged in recent years, which examines nineteenth-century sketches (sometimes referred to as “panoramic literature”) from a transnational perspective. The present international conference seeks to continue this comparative reflection by placing the spotlight on the comparative analysis of texts and images of specific types and by tracing how these representations vary across sketches from different places, media and editorial contexts.

Argument

A new wave of scholarship has emerged in recent years, which examines nineteenth-century sketches (sometimes referred to as ‘panoramic literature’) from a transnational perspective.The present international conference seeks to continue this comparative reflection by placing the spotlight on the comparative analysis of texts and images of specific types and by tracing how these representations vary across sketches from different places, media and editorial contexts.
  • How do the representations and definitions of a type (or group of related types) vary from one national context to another?
  • How do different collections, periodicals or editorial contexts inflect a type in different ways?
  • How do visual representations of a type differ from one another or from literary representations of the same figure?
  • How does the type transform as it is taken up in other genres, registers or types of discourse?
  • Does the type exist in a system? Does it belong to a collection or series of types and if so, how does it relate to or interact with other types in the system? How do different collections position the type within their systems?
