Location: London Knowledge Lab, Emerald Street.
Host/Speaker: Professor Carey Jewitt/Dr Jeff Bezemer
Date and Time:
Thursday, 16 February 2012, 10:00 - 17:30
Digital data can provide a rich but also
challenging empirical basis for social science research. Multimodality offers
theoretical and methodological frameworks for analyzing these data. Focusing on
the social interaction captured and/or shaped by digital technologies
multimodality attends to all forms of representation and communication,
including language, body posture, gaze, and moving image.
This one day introductory course, organised as part of the NCRM MODE node, will provide participants with:
- explications of multimodal frameworks &
- an introduction to the use of key terms and
- direct experience of analyzing digital data ;
- critical discussions of limits &
possibilities of multimodal approaches.
It will draw on digital multimodal research from
a range of contexts including health and education. It will explore these
topics through a mixture of presentations, interactive data workshops,
discussion and a panel Q & A session.
