Grafill Illustrasjon: Foredrag med Susan Doyle

Susan Doyle, editor of the History of Illustration (Bloomsbury), will give a presentation about the grassroots effort that sparked the mammoth five-year international effort to create first ever textbook on illustration history.

Having brought together scores of researchers, curators, professional illustrators, and academics, the book was released in 2018, and surveys illustration practice from five continents, in a chronological format that intermittently focuses on geographic and sub-genre topics.

Doyle will reflect on the importance of assembling a team of diverse contributors, and the difficulties in streamlining such a large knowledge base into a format scaled for an introductory course.

Having recently implemented the textbook into teaching practice, she will discuss the practicalities and pitfalls of integrating such expanded historic content into an undergraduate curriculum, and the importance of theory in contextualizing the vast amount of output surveyed.

Free and open for all.
