Hi everyone. I haven't posted to the discussion board before, but I met Ryan in a cab in Philly at NCTE...long story!
Anyway, I am a doc student at Kent State University and I am writing a piece now about the reading/writing connection through the lens of inference. Part of the work focuses on non-textual inference (like when someone comes in and slams down their things you can infer through their actions they are angry) in film (using Charlie Chaplin's "In the Lion's Cage" which you can view at YouTube) and how graphic novelists have to use both text and illustrations to imply meaning, drive plot, characterization...
I'm looking for some promising texts or web sites that anyone has read that might support what I'm doing. Unless I'm looking in all the wrong places, I'm not finding much.
Thanks for any help/ thoughts.
