Welcome to the website of the conference Engaging margins: Framing imagery as embodiment of cognitive processes. 

Engaging margins is a two-day international conference that takes place at the Université catholique de Louvain, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, on Thursday 8 and Friday 9 October 2020. It is organized by Ghent University and Université catholique de Louvain, Group for Early Modern Cultural Analysis (GEMCA).

This conference aims to assess to what extent images placed in the margins of a main literary or visual work could reflect, encourage or interact with cognitive processes. In doing so, it seeks to combine two fields of inquiry: the history of ideas and visual media in early modern Europe.
