BAAL/CUP Seminar on Multimodality and Applied Linguistics
University of Reading, UK
July 18-19 2003
British Association for Applied Linguistics / Cambridge University Press


We are pleased to announce this BAAL/Cambridge University Press
Seminar to be held at the University of Reading, UK on 18-19 July

The guest speakers are Professor Guy Cook (University of Reading),
Professor Gunther Kress (University of London, Institute of
Education), and Professor Sue Walker (University of Reading).

The objective of the event is to bring together researchers working in
areas of applied linguistics which impinge on multimodality, to
address the questions of how applied linguistics may be informed by
current research on multimodality, and how applied linguistics can
contribute to the development of knowledge about multimodality. We
welcome presentations on any of the following themes:

-multimodality and the new media
-multimodality and multi-mediality in academic and educational contexts
-multimodality and literacy practices
-the creation of multimodal corpora
-multimodality and typography
-multimodal text analysis
-theoretical concerns, including discussion and evaluation of
appropriate theoretical and analytical frameworks for the study of
multimodal discourse.

The deadline for abstracts for 40-minute papers is 31 March
2003. Abstracts should be submitted as e-mail attachments to James
Simpson (j.e.b.simpson at reading.ac.uk) and should be no longer than 300
words. Abstracts should also contain the following information:

(1)Paper title
(2)Name(s) of author(s)
(3)Affiliation(s) of author(s)
(4)Contact information (postal address, e-mail address and telephone number)
(5) Equipment needed for the presentation

We especially encourage the submission of proposals from postgraduate
students. We are offering three student scholarships for the seminar
for student members of BAAL which will cover accommodation and
registration. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, you
should submit an application by 31 March 2003. This should be in the
form of a 200-word statement outlining the relevance of the seminar to
your own research. Priority will be given to those presenting a paper.

Short versions of accepted papers will be written and circulated
before the event in order to optimise the level of
discussion. Participants will be invited to write up papers presented
at the seminar for publication.
