Course description

The course presents a number of theoretical and methodological approaches to multimodality: how different modes of communication combine for meaning-making in different contexts. The research field is theoretically and methodologically multifaceted, and the course introduces a number of important sub-fields, for example multimodal discourse analysis, multimodality and learning, multimodal interaction analysis, and rhetorical multimodal analysis. Students have the opportunity to do an in-depth study of one or a few of these approaches, if possible with direct relevance to their own PhD thesis. The language of instruction is English.
