Meeting Room 6 (4th floor) 

The intent of this workshop is to introduce the skill of ‘reading images’ without language as a crutch. I will present two graphic narratives: “The Quickening”, (an illness narrative about the inheritance of depression) and a second visual narrative with more complex themes and storyline, both wordless. Participants will ‘read’ both and write their interpretations down, which we will then share and compare, discussing what does and doesn’t work (relative to the initial goals of the narratives), how visual stories differ from text narratives in terms of reading experience, and how visual metaphor can open up a story to create more universal significance to audiences.

stef lenk is interested in the practical application of academic research into graphic novels and illness narratives. She is an illustrator of picture stories and also works as a researcher for the PathoGraphics project at the Freie University in Berlin.
