- multimodality and multi-mediality in academic and educational

- the creation of multimodal corpora
- multimodality and typography
- multimodal text analysis
- theoretical concerns, including discussion and evaluation of
appropriate theoretical and analytical frameworks for the study of
multimodal discourse.

your own research. Priority will be given to those presenting a paper.

discussion. Participants will be invited to write up papers presented
at the seminar for publication.
