MediaCommons’ The New Everyday announces the publication of a cluster on “The Multimodality of Comics in Everyday Life” curated by Ernesto Priego of City University London and David N. Wright of Douglas College.
This is a collection of short articles exploring how comics infiltrate everyday cultural representations in ways that go beyond extensions of the printed page.
Architecture, design, sex, web browsers, current politics, celebrity magazines, fandom, cities and advertising: the articles in this cluster explore just a few examples of comics not as a fixed paradigm, but as multimodality itself.
As an international, multidisciplinary, collaborative online project, featuring a diverse range of scholarly timbre, this cluster is an experiment in online comics scholarship that offers a different kind of output than what might normally be expected from journal articles.
If comics are to move off the page, then this cluster actively resists such associations as it strives for a kind of liminal, fragmentary scholarship that suggests offerings in search of responses.
