"Reading Images" provides a systematic and comprehensive account of the grammar of visual design. By looking at the formal elements and structures of design: color, perspective, framing and composition, Gunther Kress and Theo van Leeuwen examine the ways in which images communicate meaning. Drawing on an enormous range of examples--children's drawings, textbook illustrations, photojournalism, advertising images and fine art, as well as three-dimensional forms such as sculpture and architecture-- the authors demonstrate the differences and the similarities between the grammar of language and that of visual culture. As we move from a culture dominated by language to one in which visual literacy becomes increasingly important, this book provides an invaluable "tool-kit" for reading images.

Erz hlsituationen in Literatur und Film

Release Date: 1996-01-01
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

Taking its bearings from Franz K. Stanzel's theory of typical narrative situations, this study examines the narrative structuring of literary works and the way this is transposed into the medium of film. The first section prepares the theoretical ground for the development of a model allowing objective comparison and artistic evaluation of literary works and the film versions made of them, taking full account of the differences between the two media. The second part tests the practical applicability of the theoretical criteria thus established, looking in detail at texts by Thomas Mann, Erich Kästner, Frisch and Döblin, and films by Visconti, Schlöndorff, Jutzi, Fassbinder etc.

Media are not defined only by their economic function; they are also cultural assets and institutions with growing societal importance.

Reading Contemporary Picturebooks

Author: David Lewis
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781135121525
Release Date: 2012-11-12
Genre: Education

Reading Contemporary Picturebooks takes a look at one of the most vibrant branches of children's literature - the modern picturebook. This exciting new book takes a sample of contemporary picturebooks and closely examines the features that make them distinctive and then suggests a way of characterising the 'interanimation' of words and pictures that is the essence of the form. The reasons for the picturebook's vitality and flexibility are also explored and the close bond between the picturebook and its readers is analyzed. Advances in our understanding of how visual images are organized are examined and the book concludes with an attempt to redescribe the picturebook in such a way that pictures, readers and text may be drawn together. Picturing Text will be of interest to students, teachers and researchers interested in reading, children's literature and media studies.

Raumkonstitution durch Sprache

Author: Christoph Schubert

Release Date: 2009-05-05
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

Die Studie untersucht, wie die lineare Kette sprachlicher Zeichen in Deskriptionssequenzen englischer Texte vor dem ,inneren Auge‘ des Rezipienten einen Vorstellungsraum konstituiert. Sie verbindet damit in neuartiger Weise Kategorien der Textlinguistik mit Ansätzen der Semantik und der Kognitiven Grammatik. Zudem werden Ergebnisse relevanter Nachbardisziplinen wie der Literatur- und Kunstwissenschaft sowie der Wahrnehmungs- und Gestaltpsychologie einbezogen. Auf der Basis eines Korpus von Textsorten mit hohen deskriptiven Anteilen, wie etwa Reiseführern oder geographischen Sachtexten, wird eine Taxonomie von prototypischen ,Blickführungstypen‘ erarbeitet und anhand von zahlreichen exemplarischen Analysen sowie graphischen Darstellungen veranschaulicht. Diese Blickführungstypen werden als spezifische Linearisierungsstrategien definiert, die auf bildschematischen Konfigurationen aus Trajektor und Landmarke beruhen. In diesem Kontext wird analysiert, inwiefern Lokalisierungsausdrücke sowohl durch grammatische und lexikalische Kohäsion wie auch durch ortsdeiktische Situierungen zur Raumkonstitution beitragen. Von besonderem Interesse sind hierbei die textuellen Effekte und Funktionen, die aus der Blickführung resultieren.

Multimodality

Release Date: 2009-12-04
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

The 21st century is awash with ever more mixed and remixed images, writing, layout, sound, gesture, speech, and 3D objects. Multimodality looks beyond language and examines these multiple modes of communication and meaning making. Multimodality: A Social Semiotic Approach to Contemporary Communication represents a long-awaited and much anticipated addition to the study of multimodality from the scholar who pioneered and continues to play a decisive role in shaping the field. Written in an accessible manner and illustrated with a wealth of photos and illustrations to clearly demonstrate the points made, Multimodality: A Social Semiotic Approach to Contemporary Communication deliberately sets out to locate communication in the everyday, covering topics and issues not usually discussed in books of this kind, from traffic signs to mobile phones. In this book, Gunther Kress presents a contemporary, distinctive and widely applicable approach to communication. He provides the framework necessary for understanding the attempt to bring all modes of meaning-making together under one unified theoretical roof. This exploration of an increasingly vital area of language and communication studies will be of interest to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students in the fields of English language and applied linguistics, media and communication studies and education.
