Abstract

This one-day symposium was organised by Dolores Phelps to examine the ethical and moral motives and social philosophy behind illustrators’ and cartoonists’ practice, towards developing a social conscience within a commercial practice. Held on: Wednesday 14 November 2018, at the Main Gallery, Museum in the Park, Stroud, Gloucestershire, UK. Chaired/led by Dolores Phelps, MPhil/PhD Researcher, Illustration. The activist and writer Myshele Haywood-Goldberg, in her definition of “Social Conscience” for the University of Strathclyde and the Centre for Human Ecology, describes a framework whereby the triad of consciousness, structure, and agency interrelate to create a strong (or weak) social conscience. The speakers were asked to examine, investigate and discuss their own moral motivations and questions that have arisen during their development as illustration practitioners and historians. The topics were proposed to cover various responses to ethical and moral questions: · Satirical responses: political cartoons and popular illustration of 19th, 20th and 21st centuries · Raising awareness: Speakers will reflect on the meaning and relevance of having a social conscience in art and design, · Personal experience: Reflection on long careers in Illustration and drawing and how issues such as female identity, social pressures or political views have created opportunities, challenges or obstacles within the constraints of commercial and real-life Illustration practice. · The notion of ‘praxis’ and what it means when ideals or principles are integrated successfully into practice with intention and purpose. · Historical perspective: An overview of the role of satire and how it reflects dissent and opposition to regimes which may be perceived to be unfair or oppressive (conversely, how satire can also repress progressive movements eg. Women’s Suffrage). Speakers: Prof Brian Maidment, Liverpool John Moores University Andrzej Krauze, Political Cartoonist Karrie Fransman, Graphic novelist and comics artist. Additional short overview by Illustration researcher Dolores Phelps of staff research interests in the Illustration department of the University of Gloucestershire.
