>This yearÝs theme will be ýAccessţ, a term whose nuances we find highly
>provocative.  Possible questions/concepts to consider include, but are not
>limited to:
>
>▀      Who is granted access to a given work or text, whether economically,
>psychologically, physically, geographically, politically, via ritual,
>affinity, identity, or otherwise?
>▀      What powers and/or features render a work ýaccessibleţ?  How? Why?
>▀      What is the role of secrecy and other denials of access?  Incidental?
>Strategic?
>▀      Disclosure/Revelation within or about a work
>▀      Literary or artistic spaces: how do we enter or leave them?
>▀      What features determine the accessibility of art or literature?
>▀      How does the relative accessibility of an artwork or text affect its
>reception, its value, and/or its criticism?
>▀      What particular stake do academics, critics, and museum
>professionals play
>in creating and controlling access?
>▀      How might an artwork or text provide (or deny) access either
>to the self
>or to something else, whether an object, an experience, another person, ýthe
>Otherţ, foreign spaces, the artist or author, etc.?
>
>
>Symposium presentations will be limited to twenty minutes and should address
>the theme of access.  Presentations will be divided into two panels, whose
>topics will be chosen based on the submissions received.  We are
>particularly interested in papers that challenge the terms and questions
>associated with access within the study of visual and written
>representations.  The list of possible topics above is by no means intended
>to be exhaustive.
>
>
>Please direct inquiries and send one-page abstracts (including your name,
>department, and a brief explanation of how your paper relates to the theme
>of the Symposium) to: Nathaniel Stein ([log in to unmask])
>by January 15, 2005.
