Workshop: Image, Music, Text
Updated: Mar 17, 2022
The inaugural workshop of the Edinburgh-Meiji Research Partnership, "Intermedial Encounters Between Image, Music and Text: With and Beyond Roland Barthes" will be held in person and online on March 16.
“Image, Music, Text” is the name of the famous English-language essay anthology written by Roland Barthes and selected and translated by Stephen Heath in 1977. In these pieces, Barthes asserts the importance of moving from author to reader and work to text via a series of reflections on and semiological investigations of film stills, musical and theatrical performances, photographs and written texts. Taking example from Barthes’s intermedial practice and critical essays contributing to the theoretical framework of intermediality, this workshop will explore a diverse range of relationships between images, music and texts within and beyond the scope of Barthesian analyses.

Where: Hybrid. Online and In-person | Medical School, Doorway 1 | Sydney Smith Lecture Room (2nd Floor, Room 2.520) | EH8 9AG. The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh.
