Symposium on 'Multimodal Approaches to Communication', University of Verona, 27
Social Semiotics (Hodge and Kress, 1988) has been refining its analytic tools
for more than a decade, starting from Visual Grammar (Kress and van Leeuwen,
1996, 2006) and founding Multimodal Discourse Analysis (Kress and van Leeuwen,
2001). Since then, also in Italian academic contexts, several researchers have
been working alongside this agenda and have produced a number of valuable
studies, in some cases developing original frameworks (cf. for example Baldry
and Thibault, 2006).
Social semiotics and multimodal analysis refer explicitly to Hallidayan
linguistics, by transforming its tools and interpretative framework so as to
give account of all semiotic modes and practices. In the Italian context,
researchers on multimodality generally work within the area of Linguistic
Studies and, specifically, of Studies on English Language and Linguistics. Yet
not only are linguistic categories and tools hardly suitable for the analysis of
multimodal texts; even more, a multimodal approach to texts confers new
perspectives to the interpretation of language and communication.
Stemming from these considerations, the Symposium on 'Multimodal Approaches to
Communication' (Verona, 27 May 2009) will gather Italian researchers in the
field to discuss their works with reference to how multimodal analysis sheds new
light onto linguistic studies and studies on communication.
The Symposium presents itself as an opportunity for opening a discussion onto
new possibilities and directions for interpreting human communication.
