Abstract

The use of new technologies and innovative combinations of semiotic resources in the various fields of contemporary communication has brought multimodality into focus as an approach that can provide the tools for investigating complex texts. Multimodal research advances knowledge of semiotic resources such as language, images, sound, etc. and the ways in which their complex interplay creates meaning in a variety of texts that use different media. This thematic section of Hermes: Journal of Language and Communication Studies includes five articles which systematically use multimodal approaches to face up to the challenges posed by the transcription and analysis of these complex texts.
