MODE multimodal methodologies FOR RESEARCHING DIGITAL DATA AND ENVIRONMENTS
June 10th, 2014, London Knowledge Lab
Of all cultural forms, the moving image is one of the most important in contemporary culture, and one of the most richly multimodal, combining visual design, language, music, dramatic action. The digital era has produced new forms and contexts, from Youtube to machinima. Multimodal analysis offers ways to account for all the modes in play in a given form or text, and the ways in which they work together, moving beyond conventional forms of film and television analysis which privilege filming and editing. This seminar will be of interest to students, educators, researchers and academics working with film, television and animation.
