Use of images and fiction resources to increase legibility in academic texts
ResumoTraditional academic texts, under the robe of the academic respectability and rigor, have become increasingly poorly written and intimidating. The author seems to write only for his peers, without even worrying about a more general academic audience. In addition to being barely readable, these texts turn out to be terribly tiring and tedious. This paper aims to break this barrier by proposing to write academic texts within nar-ratives that respect the so-called “natural course of events”, using images to translate words and abstract situations. It also aims to increase the legibility, motivation and design of these texts by making use of resources commonly found in fiction texts.
