MULTIMODALITY TALKS Series Autumn 2022-Spring 2023

Sophia Diamantopoulou (UCL Institute of Education), Elisabetta Adami (University of Leeds School of Languages, Cultures and Societies), 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.

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.

If you would like to present your work at our series, please send a title, abstract and short biosketch to: and 

The seminars will be running 12.00-13.30 GMT – 13.00-14:30 CET online on Zoom. Kindly use the registration link to register and attend the talk.
