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 in a general cultural context and especially in the arts in the broadest sense.

Each of the four papers in this session addresses a work in a variety of media–manuscript illumination, architecture, literature, and painting–that displays the integration and interrelationships between textual and visual discourses.
