Call for Papers: Journal of Illustration

The Journal of Illustration is a peer reviewed bi-annual journal, published by Intellect. It is in full colour, and richly illustrated, with a view towards collapsing the distinctions between academic and practice-led perspectives on the subject. 

Aims and Scope

Illustration is a rapidly evolving field with an excitingly broad scope. Despite its cultural significance and rich history, illustration has rarely been subject to deep academic scrutiny. The Journal of Illustration (JILL) provides an international forum for scholarly research and investigation of a range of cultural, political, philosophical, historical and contemporary issues, in relation to illustration. The journal encourages new critical writing on illustration, associated visual communication and the role of the illustrator as visualizer, thinker and facilitator, within a wide variety of disciplines and professional contexts. One of the key aims of the journal is to work towards a definition of illustration, and its place in culture and history. 

For more details, and for previous volumes (including a free issue 1.1) see:,id=233/

Call for Papers

For volume 2.2 we are seeking papers that address one of the following two themes: 

1. Process and Practice

We invite papers and/or practice-led articles where the emphasis is placed on exploring the process of illustration. Rather than emphasising illustrative outcomes, we welcome submissions that examine the ways in which illustrations are made, and that explore what kinds of concerns are raised by examining and reflecting upon process. In short: the how rather than the what. For example, drawing as a process arguably takes illustration (as a mode of representation) in a certain direction (in a methodology which has been described as the ’searching’ line), while collage/photomontage, produced from pre-existing elements, creates, promotes and ‘enacts’ other forms of knowledge of a subject.


2. The Illustration of Knowledge

As a complementary topic, JILL 2.1 (due for publication in October 2015) is concerned with the ways in which illustration and knowledge have been entwined, both historically and conceptually. JILL 2.1 emerges from the The 4th International Illustration Symposium, ‘Science, Imagination & the Illustration of Knowledge’, which was held 7–8 November 2013. The question this conference explored was: how do illustrations, drawings and diagrams inform our understanding of the world? What is the role of the visual in the collection, organisation, understanding and communication of knowledge? What is the relationship between the ‘natural’ and the ‘imagined’?

As part of an ongoing dialogue on this topic, in Volume 2.2 we wish to continue this thread and invite papers that look at the ways in which illustration and knowledge have been mutually implicated. The individual interpretation of this is open. 

Academic papers should be between 5,000–7,000 words, and more practice-led papers should be in the region of 2,000–3,000 words. They should be fully referenced in Harvard style and images should be 300dpi or larger, at the size they are intended for reproduction. Full submission guidelines can be found on the Intellect website (link above). 

The deadline for submission is 30 September 2015, for an anticipated publication date of January 2016. Statements of interest and/or full papers should be sent to both of the guest editors for this volume:

Dr. Sheena Calvert

Central St. Martins/Camberwell College of Arts,UAL 

Adrian Holme

Camberwell College of Arts,

University of the Arts London
