It is the dy­namic in­ter­play between verbal text, visual im­ages, and other se­mi­otic af­ford­ances (e.g. hy­per­links) that will be brought un­der close scru­tiny in this work­shop. In order to do so, we will mainly draw upon Kress and van Leeuwen’s (2006) the­ory of visual design as well as Kress’s (2010) more re­cent work on mul­timod­al­ity and Jay Lemke’s (2002) no­tion of hy­per­mod­al­ity. More spe­cific­ally, we will crit­ic­ally re­view how this the­or­et­ical ap­par­atus has re­cently been ap­plied to a broad range of top­ics, giv­ing rise to what one could call a ‘mul­timodal turn’ in so­ci­o­lin­guist­ics and dis­course ana­lysis.
