Based on papers presented at the Fifth Triennial Conference of the International Association of Word and Image Studies held in 2002 in Hamburg, the 22 essays cover a variety of media, from medieval architecture to interactive digital art. The papers are organized around the themes of history and identity, cultural memory, texts and photographs, mixed-media texts, intermedia texts, and space, spatialization and virtual space. The contributors, who represent various disciplines from Europe, the US and South America, discuss such topics as symbolism and identity in Whistler and Hitchcock; cartographic strategies in contemporary fiction; and the shift from university seals to university logos. The papers in French have not been translated into English.
