TEXT-IMAGE PARERGON explores the potentials and challenges in the contentious relations of scriptorial and pictorial signs. How do text and image respectively frame an academic or creative artefact? Does the combination/integration of both constitute an extended value or merely a supplementary by-product that primarily appeals to the (visual) sense(s)? Should such parerga be considered positively as added experiential benefit, or negatively as distractive embellishment of a core? Does form follow function, or may form extend function? Works in this space may include traditional and non-traditional academic formats that investigate in theory and/or practice the precarious tensions between the written word and images of any kind. This space is built up in resonance with ongoing research and teaching. The following table of content will lead in the coming month to the related contributions. Discussion will take place in our Webinar. Online and prepared for discussion are now: Daniel Irrgang/Clemens, Chronotopologies, Leila Peacock, Diagrammarians.
