The history of hybrid forms, defined as textual and visual products that combine and integrate multiple types of symbolic elements, extends back to ancient times. Our current category of graphic narrative, as constructed in the Centre Belge de la Bande Dessinée, Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics, and Thierry Groenstein’s Système de la Bande Dessinée, participates in that history, gaining importance and traction in society and the academy in the current century. This workshop is intended to examine the history, function, and significance of graphic narratives, specifically in making and communicating various forms of knowledge—personal, scientific, historic, cultural, and textual—in a broader context of hybridity.

John Rodden closes the preface to his 1989 book, The Politics of Literary Reputation: The Making and Claiming of ‘St. George’ Orwell with the assertion:
Orwell poses unusual, and valuable, difficulties by virtue of the complex, highly personal response to him by readers; and he offers unusual, if complicated, opportunities by his politicized reception and the diversity of his audiences. The rare and auspicious fact is that Orwell has been both an extraordinarily popular serious writer and a critically acclaimed one. (xiii)
