Exploring the Visual Qualities of Literature
On 2 June 2010 I participated in the inaugural Doctoral Showcase at University College Cork (UCC). This event acted as a platform for doctoral candidates across the institution to present their research to a non-specialist audience.
Delivering a presentation entitled “Elizabeth Bowen and the Art of Visuality” the challenge for me was to successfully communicate the focus of my research (as well as my enthusiasm for it) in a short space of time and to a diverse audience of industry, university and public representatives. Using some striking images along with evocative quotations to outline my approach to Bowen’s writing I was not only delighted but surprised when I achieved second place.
