  • The mediating role of the publisher/designer/author/illustrator in the (re)construction of the material artefact
  • Translation of picturebooks and graphic narratives as interlingual mediation, intralingual mediation and inter-semiotic mediation (including audio-description, sign language and brail)
  • The skills and practices of educators/storytellers/translators as mediators of picturebooks and graphic narratives
  • The training of educators/storytellers/translators for mediating picturebooks and graphic narratives
