Thursday 13th June 2013, CRASSH, University of Cambridge, 9.30am – 5.30pm
What is the artist’s role – and responsibility – in visually interpreting the Bible? How did this change in nineteenth-century Britain, when the stability of scripture was increasingly uncertain? How do sacred texts in particular pose problems for the relationship between the verbal and the visual? This one day colloquium will consider how religious belief, form, function, medium, gender, and sexuality figured in representations of Biblical narrative, spanning textiles, painting, drawing and sculpture. Speakers: Michaela Giebelhausen (Essex), Colin Cruise (Aberystwyth), Ayla Lepine (Yale/Courtauld), Claire Jones (York )
Registration is from 9.30 to 10.00
The event concludes with a wine reception at 5.35pm
