Dr Jeff Bezemer
Professor Gunther Kress

The Centre for Multimodal Research undertakes research and offers training courses and consultancy services in the following areas:

  • representation and communication, including studies of the use of speech, gesture, image, typography and writing
  • learning and assessment, including studies of language, science and medical education
  • technology and new media, including studies of screen, tangible and mobile technologies and social media
  • research methods, including visual, video and multimodal methods.

We explore these issues across different sites, including schools, museums, workplaces and online environments, using ethnographic, video-based, interactional, discourse-analytic and textual methods of analysis drawn from social semiotics, ethnomethodology, linguistics, museum studies, graphic design and other disciplines.
