Transcript Friday, 4 - 5:30 p.m. the Micoprocessor — the Birth of a Narrative Genre." Micro-based games promise to develop into a full- fledged narrative genre. The distinctive characteristics of the genre, despite its infancy, can already be identified. In order to illuminate these characteristics, we will look at a subset of the genre — travel to another time — and compare it to the treatment of time-travel in prose narrative. To illustrate the distinctive aspects of the genre, a new video game will be shown, demonstrated, and discussed. VISIONARY IMAGES IN THE VISUAL ARTS Room 112 Chair: Amy Golahny, Normal, Illinois. Craig Adcock, Florida State University. "The Dada •Cyborg' and Its Heritage." The cyborg (cybernetics + organism) is a recurring image in science fiction. The part-human, part machine entity is generally equipped to survive in some harsh environment. The cyborg image in science fiction was anticipated in the world of visual art. One example is Raoul Hausmann's collage, Tatlin at Home, 1920. For the dadist Hausmann, the metaphor of the cyborg also involved survival. My paper will explore the history and development of the cyborg as a dystopian metaphor in 20th-century art and literature. O.J. Rothrock, University of New 'Temptation of St. Anthony.'" Mexico. "Callot's Jacques Callot etched his first version of the "Temptation of St. Anthony" in Florence in 1616- 1617. In contrast to compositional traditions, however, in particular Bosch and Breughel, Callot's design is derived from the visionary scenes in the underworld in Medici theatre. This "spectacular" treatment of the subject addresses itself less to fantasy in the sense of objective distortions or inventions than it does to the mind's subjective or hallucinatory capacities. Callot's "diableries" are intellectually convincing travesties of scientific anatomy. Francine Koslow, McGill University, Montreal.

No abstract available. particular) and Satan (or demons in general) all have specific iconographic meanings — many of which denote the sexual excesses of satyrs and demons. Numerous representations of satyrs and demons are found in 15th and 16th century prints, but the distinction between these figures is nearly imperceptible. What is perceptible, however, is the dualism of the representations, which vary according to country of origin. In Germany and Flanders the satanic depictions concentrate on the devil's lascivious maleficence. In Italy anad France the satyr's erotic yearnings are emphasized. Kathleen Russo, Florida Atlantic University. "From Overt Eroticism to Sexual Fantasy in 18th Century Art." During the first half of the 18th Century sexual themes, which enjoyed a tremendous popularity, were often treated with candor and humor. As the 18th Century progressed, the change in social structure and morals suppressed the former overt treatment of these sexual themes and created a tension and power that eventually leads to a very fanciful and sometimes bizarre treatment of topics dealing with love and sex. Henri Fuseli, among other late 18th Century artists, also reflects this trend, which eventually influenced many 19th Century artists. In this presentation, specific examples of art from the early to late 18th Century will be shown and discussed in reference to this change in the treatment of sexual themes. Gwendolyn Layne, Vanderbilt University. "Western Ways with Eastern Things: Oriental Sexuality in the Illustrative Art of Mervyn Peake and Aubrey Beardsley." Europe's collective daydream of the Orient primarily involves sexual fantasy, and when Occident and orient collide in literature and art, the resulting hybrid is charged with energy and design foreign to both traditions. When western artists illustrate an oriental text, or a text modeled on an oriental theme, style is modified to reflect the imagined Eastern ambience of eroticism or sexuality. Comparisons of Mervyn Peake's and Aubrey Beardsley's illustrations, with illustrations from various editions of Arabian Nights (and some examples of "the real thing" — Oriental erotic art) support this thesis.
