The Crowd-Pleasing Cover Art of Railway Novels & George Cruikshank’s Eye. Come see some stunning nineteenth-century visual images and witness their re-birth in the digital age! The topic will be two new digital projects: one on the crowd-pleasing cover art of railway novels and the other, in progress, on presenting an archive, held by the Hammer museum, of George Cruikshank’s caricatures and prints. Jonathan H. Grossman is Professor of English at UCLA. He works on nineteenth-century British literature. Ellen Truxaw, PhD candidate in English at UCLA, is writing a dissertation about the relation between image and text in the nineteenth century.
The 181st meeting of the NY Comics & Picture-story Symposium will be held on Tuesday, March 14, 2017 at 7pm at Parsons School of Design, 2 West 13th Street, in the Bark Room (off the lobby).
