TORCH: Image and Thought Network
Images are often considered as playing an auxiliary role in the process of thinking, having an explicative rather than a heuristic function. The Image and Thought Network sets out to challenge this conceptualisation and its related hierarchy of value, not only to unsettle such presuppositions but also to explore the porous boundaries between image and thought. The aim of the network is to consider the relationship between image and thought across disciplines, time frames and cultural traditions; in particular the project crosses philosophy, art and art history, literature and literary criticism, and theology and religion studies.
