Images and Texts Reproduced, XIth International IAWIS/AIERTI Conference. University of Lausanne, Lausanne, Switzerland, July 10–14, 2017.
Founded in July 1987, the International Association of Word and Image Studies/Association Internationale pour l’Etude des Rapports entre Texte et Image (IAWIS/AIERTI) seeks to foster the study of Word and Image relations within visual culture. The eleventh triennial IAWIS conference focused on the topic of "Images and Texts Reproduced" and explored the impact of reproduction/reproducibility on artistic and literary creation.
In this conference presentation, I discussed the implications of re-representing archival and photographic documents via animation in the autobiographical films I Was a Child of Holocaust Survivors (2010) and Minoru: Memory of Exile (1992). Below is my paper abstract.
