MULTIMODALITY TALKS Series is a joint initiative for researchers across the world who are interested in multimodality. It aims to provide a platform for dialogue for advancing multimodal research across disciplines. Multimodality draws attention to how meaning is made through the combined use of semiotic resources such as gesture, speech, face expression, body movement and proxemics, (still and moving) image, objects, sound and music, writing, colour, layout, and the built environment.

This international series of talks is organised by The UCL Visual and Multimodal Research Forum, the University of Leeds Multimodality@Leeds and Insulander/Svärdemo Åberg at the Department of Education, Stockholm University Multimodality talks series. It is conceived of working as a tandem with the Bremen-Groningen Online Workshops on Multimodality to make the best of the online format to offer multiple chances for sharing research and stimulating discussions on multimodality worldwide.

Elisabetta Adami (University of Leeds School of Languages, Cultures and Societies), Sophia Diamantopoulou (UCL Institute of Education), Eva Insulander and Eva Svärdemo Åberg (Stockholm University, Dept. of Education) are pleased to invite you to a series of jointly organized talks on multimodality.
