More on impact ›
This speciality section pursues a multi-disciplinary academic approach to the challenges raised by the inherent multimodality of all forms of communication. The speciality section will provide a forum for sharing findings, and new discoveries, on how multimodality impacts theories and applications in areas including treatments of semantics, semiotics, pragmatics, experimental methods, and corpus-based methods, while highlighting new connections between multimodal semiotics, construed broadly to include all the above, and emerging computational methods for data analysis, visualisation, and curation.
Particular focus will be put on studies that draw on varied media and newly emerging interactional and presentational forms employing mixed methods and formal and functional approaches to communication. Also welcome are studies focusing on explicit applications of concepts and theories of multimodality, for example in design, critical media analyses, education, language acquisition, multiliteracies, cross-linguistic and cross-cultural variation in relation to multimodality, gesture, diagrammatics and visual reasoning. Multimodality, in the sense intended here, therefore includes the broadest possible notion of forms of expression and employing all kinds of materialities, both actual and 'digital'.
