Author Biography - Theo Van Leeuwen
Before becoming an academic, Theo van Leeuwen worked as a film and television producer, scriptwriter and director in his native Holland and in Australia. He studied linguistics and semiotics at Macquarie and Sydney University and at the CETSAS in Paris. He has worked at Macquarie University, the University of the Arts (London), and Cardiff University, and lectured at many other Universities throughout the world. He is now Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, UTS. He has written many books and articles on discourse analysis, visual communication and multimodality. His most recent book is Introducing Social Semiotics (Routledge, 2005) and he is currently working on Global Media Discourse, to be published with Routledge in 2007. He is also editor of the journal Visual Communication. My research interests centre around three areas of specialization: 1) Research theory and methodologies: Visual and Multimodal research and and Video-based research 2) Technology mediated teaching and learning: notably its affect on classroom practices, and subject knowledge 3) Multimodal school based research: with a focus on urban schooling, identities, policy and curriculum Recent research project areas include: the development of multimodal methods for researching digital data and environments, the effects of government technology initiatives on learning in the secondary school and the home, and the changing practices of teaching and learning in the classroom.
