ImageTexT is a peer-reviewed, online journal published by the Department of English and supported through the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

The objective of ImageTexT is to advance critical and historical analysis of comics, animation, illustrated poetry and prose, and related literary and artistic genres combining image and text, in print and digital forms. Exploring all periods and all national traditions and deploying a wide range of disciplinary approaches, ImageTexT seeks to foster innovative discussions of comics and related imagetexts, to generate original formal analyses, and to broaden theoretical discussions of genre, period, narrative, and medium.

Under the direction of an editorial board comprised of scholars from diverse critical traditions, we publish solicited and peer-reviewed essays investigating the material, historical, theoretical, and cultural implications of image textuality, as well as reviews of current scholarship, announcements regarding conferences and forthcoming publications, and links to other projects of interest to the journal’s broad readership. We also publish new English-language translations of previously-published criticism in these areas of research. ImageTexT is listed in the MLA Bibliography.
