Appel à Contribution‏

ブルゴーニュ大学で2010年6月下旬に開かれる国際学会の、発表者を募るメールを受け取る。テーマは「言葉とイメージ」。(このテーマ、本当にここ10年くらい流行っているんですね……)

International Conference 24-26 June 2010
Word & Image: Theory in the 21st Century
Call for papers
An international Word & Image conference will be held at the Université de Bourgogne (Dijon, France) on 24-26 June 2010 in association with the College of the Holy Cross (Massachusetts), the Université Paris-Diderot, the bilingual journal Interfaces, the Musée des Beaux-Arts and the Musée Magnin in Dijon.
The conference will focus on the current state of the art in Word & Image theory, and it will also be an opportunity to commemorate the recent passing of Michel Baridon – one of the founding members of the journal in 1991.
The papers selected by the scientific committee will be published in Interfaces, as a sequel to the 1994 issue of the review (Interfaces 5, “La théorisation de la relation image/texte/langage”).
This interdisciplinary event welcomes contributions from any relevant field of research across the humanities and sciences. Papers are invited to focus on any aspect of the relationship between word and image during any period, but should in each case provide a clear theoretical perspective reflecting recent research and publications in their field.
PhD students are also invited to submit abstracts for a special doctoriale session. It will be the opportunity for them to make a brief presentation of their current research (10 to 15 minutes).
The abstracts and the papers can be submitted either in French or in English. The presentations should not be longer than 30 minutes.
Deadline: please send abstracts of about 300 words (along with a short bibliography and a short biography) to the organizing committee before 31st January 2010.

現在参画しているグローバルCOEで研究員に義務づけられているのが、年に一回以上は英語での口頭発表と論文発表を行うこと。ちょうど中期教育プログラムのテーマ「イメージ論の再構築」とも重なるし、英語での発表も可とされているし、申し込んでみようかな。

もう一つ、国際美学会でも発表者を募集している模様。
The Eighteenth International Congress of Aesthetics
August 9th - 13th, 2010, Beijing

並んだトピックスを見ると、「美学、それでもなお」という感じ……
