About the article

Elisabetta Adami

Elisabetta Adami is a researcher in English Language and Translation at the Department of Modern Languages, Literature and Cultures at the University G. D'Annunzio of Chieti-Pescara, Italy. Her research focuses on language, multimodal representation and communication in digital environments. Her recent publications use a social semiotic framework for the analysis of text production in social media, the affordances of mobile phones (with G. Kress), and the use of copy and paste.

Gunther Kress

Gunther Kress is Professor of Semiotics and Education at the Institute of Education, University of London. His interests are in meaning (making) and communication in contemporary environments, with two broad aims: to continue developing a social semiotic theory of multimodal communication; and, in that, to develop an apt theory of learning and apt means of “valuation of learning.” Some of the books along the road are Language as Ideology; Social Semiotics (both with Bob Hodge); Before Writing: Rethinking the Paths to Literacy; Reading Images: The Grammar of Graphic Design; Multimodal Discourse: The Modes and Media of Contemporary Communication (both with Theo van Leeuwen); Literacy in the New Media Age; Multimodality: A Social Semiotic Approach to Contemporary Communication.
