Gunther Kress

  Bio-Links

 
    Gunther Kress is professor of Education/English at the Institute of Education, University of London. His question concerning the English curriculum in schools is: "what is it that English should be, and do, in order to prepare young people for productive lives in the world of the day after tomorrow?" He has a specific interest in the interrelations in contemporary texts of different modes of communication - writing, image, speech, music - and their effects on forms of learning and knowing. He is interested in the changes - and their effects and consequences - brought by the shift in the major media of communication from the page to the screen.
Some of his recent publications are: Reading Images: the grammar of graphic design; Before Writing: rethinking the paths to literacy; Early Spelling: between convention and creativity; ( all published by Routledge); Multimodal Teaching and learning: the rhetorics of the Science Classroom (Continuum); Multimodal Discourse: the modes and media of contemporary communication (Edward Arnold); and Literacy in the New Media Age (Routledge).
