Workshop: The Rhetoric of Images. Translating between Disciplines and Cultures

Bilderfahrzeuge Workshop

The Warburg Institute, 8-9 July 2014

Organised by Christopher Johnson (Bilderfahrzeuge Project) and Peter Mack (Warburg)

Speakers: Linda Báez Rubí (Bilderfahrzeuge), Mary Carruthers (New York University and All Souls College, Oxford), Christopher D. Johnson (Bilderfahrzeuge), Andrew Laird (University of Warwick), Peter Mack (Warburg Institute) and Johannes von Müller (Bilderfahrzeuge)
