|Description:||In essence, all communication is multimodal: we use language, gesture, posture, and other non-verbal modes often at the same time to communicate. We may use many media when conducting research. We may also use creative ways of jotting down what we perceive, i.e. using poetry and other creative writing or art forms to freeze what we understand. We explain the world we investigate to others in multimodal ways.
Multimodal Communication is a venue for researchers in diverse fields of study, who are broaching communication from an interdisciplinary perspective; exploring diverse and multimodal ways to conduct research and illustrate findings. The Journal is interdisciplinary and open to papers from anthropology, through to art, math, psychology, science, sport, and beyond.
Although wide in disciplinary scope, all articles have to develop multimodality in some way. An article may use visuals/writing/sound to explore a theme; be highly theoretical and explain a philosophical point relevant to the study of multimodality; or may be based on an empirical study integrating a number of modes.
