Meeting Description:

This is the second edition of the International Webinar on Multimodal Discourse Analysis. The GRAPE (Group for Research on Academic and Professional English - makes a call for researchers who have already carried out some research on this topic or are truly interested in it. Our purpose is to have a rich exchange of ideas that can make a relevant contribution to this field of research.

This new edition of the Webinar consists of two parts. The first one will be developed from the 24 to the 28 of October and is formed by 3 online forums in which you will be asked to make at least one contribution with a new idea or comment on another researcher's contribution. The topics of the three forums are:

1. Methodological questions in multimodal analysis research
2. Pedagogical applications
3. Future of research on multimodality

The second part consists of four online lectures, which will be delivered from the 2 to the 4 of November by well-known colleagues: Gunther Kress, Teresa Morell, and Jesse Pirini (see the for further information).

These lectures will be broadcast to all participants through streaming, and will be followed by a Q & A session in which you will also be asked to participate by sending questions or comments in writing or through video-conferencing.

After the webinar, we will produce a summary of all contributions, which will be sent to all participants.

We are very excited with this second webinar and think it can be interesting not only to find out more on multimodality but also to 'meet' other colleagues working on the same topic and to learn about their points of view and their research. We would appreciate it if you could distribute this information to other colleagues that might also be interested in the topic.

Remember participation is free of charge, but we need to contact all participants to provide technical instructions, so please register at not later than 21 of October.

We look forward to your participation.
