Collaborating on a Graphic Medicine Novel: Flows in an ecosystem of production

Publikation: KonferencebidragKonferenceabstrakt til konferenceForskningpeer review


The presentation centers on establishing creative collaborations to support the production of my graphic novel (Family Anecdotes) about mourning and mental health. I explore various challenges of authoring an “autobiofictional" graphic medicine novel – as an arts-based communication researcher, as a daughter, and as a struggling graphic medicine novelist/author.
My aim is to generate knowledge about how collaborative creative production processes can be planned and completed. The process is exemplified by the complex flows between networks and fields, or ecosystem, related to my graphic novel production and publication plans. Overall, I view collaboration in light of the dialogic turn in many fields of practice including the arts, media, health, medicine and research communication. Tensions are inevitable between different knowledge forms, social actors, media and genres. The discussion addresses graphic medicine production and publication as a new practice that may incite and alter flows across dialogic, inter-disciplinary collaborations.
