Multimodal Methods for Researching Digital Data and Environments
Speaker: Professor Carey Jewitt
This talk will introduce multimodality and some of its key concepts. It will then explore how these can be applied to digital data and environments to research how technologies re-mediate interaction. It will focus on two interconnected areas of interest to multimodal communication – space, place and time and embodiment. These are of particular interest to digital research as both are significantly reconfigured by the use of digital technologies and environments. This talk will examine multimodal concepts with attention to online social media, mobile and haptic technologies.
