Illustration as Intersemiotic Translation: Visualising Nonsense

Centre for Translation (November 29, 2018)

SEMINAR SERIES : Translation Seminar

MAJOR SPEAKER : O'Sullivan, Emer
LENGTH : 109 min.
ACCESS : Open to all
SUMMARY : This talk will look at literary illustration as intersemiotic translation, as the “interpretation of verbal signs by means of signs of nonverbal sign systems" (Roman Jakobson). Using as examples illustrations of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, it will ask, amongst other things, how beyond representing scenes and characters, illustrators have "translated" into their own sign system literary elements which have no immediate visual equivalent, such as the verbal nonsense games that characterise Carroll's novel.  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
