14 September 2018, 10am-5pm
Room 246, Second Floor, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU
This one-day workshop will bring together 9 scholars from a number of disciplines (including art history, history, journalism, literature) who are currently collaborating on a special journal issue of L’Esprit créateur on the topic of intermediality and portraiture in 19th-century France.
Short paper presentations will be followed by ample discussion time. The overall aim of the workshop is to illuminate through various disciplinary perspectives how the concept of the portrait is shaped by different media forms and styles, which continuously redefine notions of identity, celebrity, expressivity and resemblance in 19th-century French visual culture.
