Abstract

This chapter presents a graphic memory of the writing process of this book. By using a cartoon style, or ‘sequential art,’ the chapter deliberately challenges conventional ways of academic communication. The chapter’s intention is to introduce the reader to the dynamic process that took place when this community of authors came together to think and write. Since the book production was a collaborative effort, joint decisions had to be made, and by utilising a cartoon style, selected individual voices could be preserved while giving the reader an impression of the community as well as the work process. By providing sketched scenes taken from video recorded meetings, aspects of the complex cultural context regarding the writers group is visualised for the reader.
