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.
