Meeting Description: 

A 2-day international workshop on knowledge communication in multimodal contexts will be held at the Aarhus School of Business, Denmark, on 21-22 May, 2007 with Anthony Baldry and Paul Thibault. 

Anthony Baldry is Professor at the University of Pavia, Italy. 
His latest publications include Multimodality and Multimediality in the Distance Learning Age (2000) and A Multimodal Approach to Text Studies in English (2005). Link to Anthony Baldry's website. 

Paul Thibault is Professor at Agder University College, Norway. 
His latest publications include Agency and Consciousness in Discourse: Self-other Dynamics as a Complex System (2004) and Brain, Mind, and the Signifying Body: An Ecosocial Semiotic Theory (2004). Link to Paul Thibault's website. 

Anthony Baldry and Paul Thibault have also published together Multimodal Text Analysis and Multimodal Transcription (2005) and Multimodal Corpus Linguistics (2006). 

The workshop has the following objectives: 

To examine in depth what new insights may be gained through a multimodal approach when analysing texts commonly seen as ''knowledge intensive'', e.g.  instructional DVDs, online help, and educational websites 
To exchange ideas about how to employ a multimodal concordancer for the exploration of multimodal texts mediating specialized knowledge 
To develop a catalogue of ideas pointing to areas of particular interest for the future explorations of multimodal analysis 

The workshop will be hosted by the ASB Research Group for Knowledge Communication from the Department of Language and Business Communication. Faculty and other scholars are invited to participate in the workshop.   

The number of participants will be restricted to a group of 30 researchers and PhD students on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the workshop is full, a waiting list will be kept. If you wish to give a presentation of your research project, please send a title and a short abstract to Carmen Daniela Maier (cdm at asb.dk).

A provisional programme for the workshop will be available at this site very soon.
