Dates: 9-10 June 2017
Location: Koç University, Istanbul, Turkey
Website: Picturebook Studies
Deadline for submission of proposals: 16 August 2016

From hornbooks to i-pads, children’s reading experiences have been mediated via transforming book systems in ways serving to educate, to entertain, and to facilitate narrative. Material and sensory aspects of picturebooks also have the capacity to act as a third narrative system, operating beside words and images.These aspects may engage and challenge the child to comprehend a subject through the experiential handling of the picturebook, resulting in an embodied meaning-making process. The exposure to these types of picturebooks may turn into a creative encounter, curated experience, an event or a performance. Physical interactions may be explored further in printed as well as digital picturebooks with the rise of multimodal literacies supported with novel technologies that can support diverse needs.

Through this workshop we seek to explore the educational, developmental, creative and intimate qualities of materials and structures in picturebooks. What is the importance of materiality in meaning construction for the child? How do spatial and sensory encounters influence a child’s understanding of a narrative, their recollection of the story? What does the future hold in relation to the physical and digital realms of children’s reading? How can this reading experience involve active participation through different materialities?

The purpose of this international workshop is to bring together scholars and experts of children’s literature, children’s media, art and design, education, psychology and other cross-disciplinary fields from different countries who are particularly interested in picturebooks that explore material, spatial and sensory experiences. We therefore invite papers dealing with one or several of the following topics:

- picturebooks appealing to the senses (edible, audio, tactile, scented)
- accessories and inserted gadgets, altered vision in picturebooks
- transformative technology (surfaces, chemicals, and processes)
- materiality and metaphor
- materialities that support reading in special needs
- physical form and narrative correspondence (volvelles, panoramas, scrolls, accordion books etc.)
- unconventional handling of picturebooks
- physical space and narrative space, interactive reading
- picturebooks as an event, an installation, an architecture
- embodied reading of picturebooks
