In this presentation Øystein Gilje discuss how digital composing can be explored by a multimodal analysis of text and practices. Drawing on a number of research studies on moving image production across a wide range of contexts, methodological issues in multimodality are discussed and elaborated upon. By discussing how each method was deployed in the research studies, the presentaion will hopefully encourage you to reflect upon methods in multimodal research relating to your own research study. Although the studies reported here look at moving image production as multimodal compositions, the presentation also contributes to issues revolving around researching empirically digital compositions within fields such as ‘new literacy studies’ and socio-cultural perspectives on literacy.

The lecture is a part of the the nordic PhD course "Methodologies of Studying Transforming Literacies", running from 18th- 19th of March.
