MIXED MESSAGES: AMERICAN CORRESPONDENCES IN VISUAL AND VERBAL PRACTICES. Ed. by Catherine Gander and Sarah Garland. Manchester University Press, 2016. Distributed by Oxford University Press. 240 pp. with 29 ills. 25 x 18 cm. ISBN 9781784991500 In English.
Publisher's description: Offering a major contribution to the field of American culture and aesthetics in an interdisciplinary frame, this collection assembles the cutting-edge research of renowned and emerging scholars in literature and the visual arts, with a foreword by Miles Orvell. The volume represents the first of its kind: an intervention in current interdisciplinary approaches to the intersections of the written word and the visual image that moves beyond standard theoretical approaches to consider the written and visual artwork in embodied, cognitive and experiential terms. Tracing a strong lineage of pragmatism, romanticism, surrealism and dada in American intermedial works through the nineteenth century to the present day, the editors and authors of this volume chart a new and vital methodology for the study and appreciation of the correspondences between visual and verbal practices.
