Surrealism and expressionism are artistic movements associated with altered consciousness and extreme emotion. My talk will consider surrealism and expressionism in their original historical context and comment on their recent use by prominent picture book auteurs, including Anthony Browne, Chris Van Allsburg, and Allen Say.

Mary Galbraith teaches literature at San Diego State University. Her work theorizes the new arenas of childhood studies, picture book studies, and cognitive poetics, drawing on close observation of literature and autobiography in conjunction with trauma theory, attachment theory, cognitive linguistics, and phenomenology.
