Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


This article deals with what is it considers the paradox of coherence. Every reading implies the search for coherence, but simultaneously that very attempt engenders new types of complexities which hinder and subvert its achievement. As an example, it uses the bimedial, photo-narrative book "Notte Oscura" (1993) by Normand de Bellefeuille and Alain Laframboise.
