Abstract:

The phenomenon of multimodality has, as Jewitt observes, generated interest
"across many disciplines…against the backdrop of considerable social
change." Contemporary societies are grappling with the social implications
of the rapid increase in sophistication and range of multimodal practices,
particularly within interactive digital media, so that the study of
multimodality also becomes essential within an increasing range of
practical domains. As a result of this increasing interest in
multimodality, scholars, teachers and practitioners are on the one hand
uncovering many different issues arising from its study, such as those of
theory and methodology, while also exploring multimodality within an
increasing range of domains.

Such an increase and range of interest in multimodality heralds the
emergence of a distinct multimodal studies field: as both the mapping of a
domain of enquiry, and as the site of the development of theories,
descriptions and methodologies specific to and adapted for the study of
multimodality. The present volume presents a range of works by an
impressive international roster of contributors who both explore issues
arising from the study of multimodality and explore the scope of this
emerging field within specific domains of multimodal phenomena.
Contributors aim to show that each individual work and works in general
within multimodal studies represent a dialectic or complementarity between
the exploration of issues of general significance to multimodal studies and
the exploration of specific domains of multimodality; while characterizing
specific works as tending to some degree towards one or other of these main
areas of focus. Such a characterization is seen as part of a move towards
the identification and thus development of a distinct field of multimodal
studies.
