Proust and the Visual is an edited volume of essays written by Proustian specialists, concerned with a rich phenomenological category, the “visual” whose prominent role in the novel is at the heart of its modernity. The “visual” is defined as manifesting in the image not only space, but also time. The “visual” is considered as a category that delineates the conditions of possibility of all visibility and constitutes an integral part of both the progression of the narrator’s journey towards becoming a writer and of the unfolding of the novel itself.

Series editors preface
Studies in Visual Culture provides a forum for ground-breaking enquiry into visual-cultural production in its social, historical and cultural contexts. The series places particular emphasis on the exchanges, transactions and displacements that link Europe to wider global contexts across the visual-cultural field. The series seeks to promote critical engagement with visual media as ideological and cultural as well as aesthetic constructs, and foregrounds the relationship of visual cultures to other fields and discourses, including cultural history, literary production and criticism, philosophy, gender and sexuality research, journalism and media studies, migration and mobility studies, social sciences, and politics. The Studies in Visual Culture series thus focuses on exploring synergies and key debates between disciplines, concepts and theoretical approaches, and offers an exciting new arena for testing and extending disciplinary, theoretical and conceptual boundaries.
