Abstract: This paper aims to illuminate a new borderlands and site of tension in multimodal discourse—where intentionality and authorial voice appear to be subject to hegemonies of form, subsumed within the self-contained logic of the medium, and where a new conception of the subject as author of multimodal meaning, integrating disembodied perceptive capacity with embodied, situated, and fundamentally human experience, is simultaneously seen to emerge. Drawing on Roland Barthes’ (1972, 1977, 1982) concept of “mythology,” this chapter will illustrate this almost invisible contestation of authorship in multimodality with a diverse set of data drawn from several domains relevant to language and literacy education, including English as a Foreign Language (EFL) textbooks and advertisements taken from Japanese and Korean contexts and interviews and artifacts collected from an after-school digital storytelling project in Oakland, California.
