A commentary on the collection of experimental interventions at the crossroads of sociology and comics, or comics-based research, published in the current issue of Sociologica. Starting from some of the most relevant aspects that both unite and distinguish the different approaches, it proposes a reflection on how comics, and more broadly drawings, can help expand the sociological imagination. It does so --- through text, drawings and captions --- focusing on the transition between concepts and images, or verbal and visual icons. The comments draw particular attention to these interventions’ diverse but converging plea for visual literacy --- tentatively renamed here imaginacy.

Abstract

A commentary on the collection of experimental interventions at the crossroads of sociology and comics, or comics-based research, published in the current issue of Sociologica. Starting from some of the most relevant aspects that both unite and distinguish the different approaches, it proposes a reflection on how comics, and more broadly drawings, can help expand the sociological imagination. It does so --- through text, drawings and captions --- focusing on the transition between concepts and images, or verbal and visual icons. The comments draw particular attention to these interventions’ diverse but converging plea for visual literacy --- tentatively renamed here imaginacy.
