As I gear up for my upcoming dive into an academic year full of digital media composition with two classes of high school students, I can’t help but get excited for these new reads, hot off the press, from one of my favorite journals, Written Communication.

Rethinking Composing in a Digital Age: Authoring Literate Identities Through Multimodal Storytelling

by Lalitha Vasudevan, Katherine Schultz, and Jennifer Bateman


Multimodal Redesign in Filmmaking Practices: An Inquiry of Young Filmmakers’ Deployment of Semiotic Tools in Their Filmmaking Practice

by Øystein Gilje

Both of these articles push our understandings of “composition” and how the communicative mode of making meaning changes, shifts, expands, and is complicated when multiple modes such as image, sound, and motion are thrown into the semiotic mix.  I’m hoping that these articles will push my own thinking in terms of how our social and embodied identities impact these processes composition.
