2006/2007 Warren Center Fellowships: “Between Word and Image”

The 2006/2007 Fellows Program at the Warren Center, “Between Word and Image,” will be co-directed by Carolyn Dever (English) and Gregg Horowitz (philosophy). The year-long seminar will bring together scholars from a variety of disciplines to explore the space between word and image, where fields of critical inquiry are being reconfigured.

Participants will explore questions such as: How are shifting social and cultural relations between word and image transforming critical practices in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences? What are the key differences among the diverse strands of contemporary inquiry into the relation of word and image? What guiding questions bind these diverse strands of inquiry into shared scholarly projects? What is at stake in maintaining current disciplinary distinctions even as scholars of the relation of word and image profit from the flexibility afforded by interdisciplinary practices?

The Warren center will sponsor a Visiting Fellow with expertise in the area of study, in addition to selected Vanderbilt faculty members. Information regarding the internal and external application process can be obtained from the Warren Center or its Web site. www.vanderbilt.edu/rpw_center
