Image (&) Narrative is seeking to deepen our understanding of the relationships between literary reading, illustration, and the web.
We are seeking two types of contributions. First, we would like to see a very specific type of illustration, namely online “independent illustrative networks” that function not as simple “illustrations,” but as visual-digital “complements” of a given work. These might be links to works of fiction, poetry, drama etc that serve as a complementary database of information to the “actual” reading of the text.
Second, we would like to gather a broad survey of current opinions in the field. Diversity will be fostered as much as possible. Therefore, all essays should take the form of a short theoretical statement (maximum 1000 words, with no footnotes) on the problem of illustrating (or not) literary material. Since, as far as we know, there does not exist a “standard” general publication on illustration, this gathering of ideas might be a first step towards such a work.
