How does marginal imagery in early modern art reflect, encourage or interact with cognitive processes?

Engaging margins is a two-day international conference that is organised by Ghent University and Université catholique de Louvain, Group for Early Modern Cultural Analysis (GEMCA).

This conference aims to assess to what extent images placed in the margins of a main literary or visual work could reflect, encourage or interact with cognitive processes. In doing so, it seeks to combine to fields of inquiry: the history of ideas and visual media in early modern Europe.

Guest speakers are Marisa Bass (Yale University), Victor Stoichita (Université de Fribourg) and Volker Remmert (Bergische Universität Wuppertal).
