Abstract / Summary

Transitus: Illustration as Crossing Ground

Illustration comprises a crossing ground between word and meaning, between image and reality, between past, present and future moments. Inherent but often unspoken is the movement of the illustrative line, of the sequence from one moment transitioning to the next, of the translations across cultures and across media. Is illustration necessarily transitive? Is the illustrator a mediator, transiting and translating between entities? What illustrative formats can move across cultural, temporal, national, and geographical boundaries and borders? How can we illustrate trans identities, gendered and otherwise? What are the forces that compel these crossings? What are the kinds of transitional passages which call for illustrated narratives, and what are the movements which carry readers from one page to the next in order to tell a particular story? This conference explores the notion of “Transitus” as an approach to thinking about “trans-” as prefix, about “trans” as crossing ground, and, most relevantly, about “trans” as a modality of illustration itself.
