This is a two-day symposium for PhD students who are working with multimodal analysis as part of their research. The aim is to present, discuss and assess the kinds of tools and procedures we are all using, as part of critical analysis. The invited speakers will also show how they themselves carry out multimodal analysis and provide feedback after presentations and individually to students.
Over the past 15 years multimodality has developed into a field and also divided into a number of different strands. Each of these has its own specific interests, but not all are necessarily suitable for clearly answering the kinds of research questions asked in Critical Discourse Studies. Here, our broad aim is to carry out close empirical analysis of discourse in ways which draw out the less obvious ways by which they communicate and carry ideology. In this symposium we explore and share the tools and procedures through which we can do this multimodally.
