Description

The essays in this volume are situated in French and Australian contexts and focus on texts linking language and visual images. There is an emerging debate in universities concerning the interpretation of images, whether in the field of aesthetics, politics or technology. The contributors focus on images ranging from photography to maps, films, paintings and computer games. In addition they consider relations between genders and nations, as understood in particular historical or semiological contexts. Geographic and disciplinary boundaries are consciously transgressed and blurred, so that a new interdisciplinary dialogue between written texts and visual arts emerges. Ce recueil d'essais, situ dans le contexte d' changes franco-australiens, a pour objet les liens entre images et langage sur le plan du discours. L'interpr tation du visuel fait l'objet d'un d bat mergeant dans les universit s, que ce soit dans le domaine de l'esth tique, du politique ou de la technologie. Les contributions analysent des images allant de la photographie, aux jeux multim dia en passant par les cartes, le cin ma et la peinture. Par ailleurs, elles interrogent les relations tant au niveau de l'individu que des nations dans des contextes historiques et s miologiques sp cifiques. Les contributeurs traversent les fronti res disciplinaires et g ographiques, de fa on susciter un nouveau dialogue interdisciplinaire entre textes et arts visuels.
