Developing Multiliteracies in Foreign Language Education - An Interdisciplinary Approach

Edited by: Daniela Elsner, Sissy Helff, Britta Viebrock

This book brings together two main disciplines, namely cultural studies and language education - both of which share a long standing interest in films, multimodal text-forms, and visuals. It highlights the increasing impact of visuals and multimodal texts on our perception of the world, our discourse behavior, and how this calls for a change in methodologies and media to be used in foreign language classrooms. The book helps to orientate educators in schools and teachers at universities within the broad concept of a multiliteracies approach and to contextualize it with regard to teaching and learning English as a foreign language.
