"Feeling and Meaning in Video Analysis:
Combining Semiotic and Phenomenological Approaches"

Thursday, October 4, 2007
7:00?8:30 PM
Great Room at 19 University Place, 1st Floor
New York University


In this talk, Professor Lemke will be discussing the need to combine a first- person, more phenomenological approach to video analysis that considers, among other things, the role of affect and feelings (both the researchers? and others?) in learning and meaning making, along with more traditional semiotic-analytic 3rd person perspectives. Professor Lemke looks to computer games for how they foreground affect and afford multiple time scales and attentional spaces.

Professor Lemke?s research interests include the role of language and multimedia in learning; the study of education re-structuring and institutional change in the framework of complex systems theory and multiple timescale analysis; and how explorations of online peer networks mediate out-of-school learning and interactions with popular culture media.

He is the co-editor of the journal Critical Discourse Studies, former co-editor of Linguistics and Education, and the author of Talking Science (1990) and Textual Politics (1995).
