A natural pairing: Bringing art and literature together
Join the editors of JSTOR’s Lives of Literature and Artstor, Anne Ray and Nancy Minty, as they explore the connections between visual imagery and the written word. Gain an editor’s perspective of new themes that emerge when artworks, photographs, and historical objects are examined alongside works of literature—as well as how curricula can be enlivened by drawing these connections.
Engaging students through visually accented narratives
Scholar, educator and author Rebecca Boone, Professor of History at Lamar University, brings history to life for her students using visually enhanced narratives. Her book, Real Lives in the Sixteenth Century: A Global Perspective, has received accolades for its vibrant narratives connecting figures across the globe. In this session, Rebecca will share her approach to drawing historical connections between literature and visuals in the classroom, and answer questions about the resources and techniques she uses in instruction, writing, and research. Plus, five attendees will receive a copy of Rebecca’s book!
