America's low levels of civic knowledge have been repeatedly documented. The Journal of Civic Literacy is a project of the Center for Civic Literacy at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). It is a new open-access, online interdisciplinary journal focused upon publishing high-quality, peer-reviewed articles on issues of American civic literacy, defined as that level of public knowledge necessary for informed civic participation.
Portraits, iconic scenes, generic images, technological endowments, among other possibilities: how does the illustration history of a work evolve over the centuries?
Papers that seek to address the illustration history of one book, novel or poem, are especially encouraged, as are comparative papers exploring illustrated editions published in different languages or in distinct literary forms. Abstracts for 20-minute papers should be sent by 1 February 2014 to Dr. Lauren Beck.
