We have a date for our first study group meeting! Thursday, Dec. 11th, 10:00a – 12:00p. We’ll use this first gathering as a chance to share ideas and see where our understandings of multimodality are rooted. This will also be an opportunity to propose texts for us to read/view over the course of the next several months.
To start us off, I’ll bring a couple of very short texts for us to read and view together as a way to spark our conversation.
Looking forward to seeing everyone!
During the 14-15 academic year, CMLL will launch a new study group that will gather faculty and students from across Teachers College who are interested in reading and discussing texts in the area of multimodality. We hope to address multimodality from a variety of perspectives and, in doing so, to engage with a wide range of texts and disciplines. Below, we’ve listed a few recent articles and books that take up the topic as both a point of departure and a framing lens for analysis. As the study group gets underway, we’ll share additional texts and related resources.
In the meantime, stay tuned for additional information about this year’s speakers, workshops, and screenings.
