In the Middle of Something: Reflections on Multimodal Inquiry as Artful Bricolage
Vasudevan, Lalitha; Reilly, Mary Ann
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v56 n6 p455-459 Mar 2013
This article presents a conversation about the nature of multimodal inquiry and composing between Lalitha Vasudevan and Mary Ann Reilly. The authors draw on their Twitter exchanges, blog posts, art, photography, and reflections as they consider what literacy education is and can be in a world that offers multiple means of expression. The theoretical constructs of bricolage and rhizomatics inform how they think about their inquiry as well as how they present their ideas. The authors problematize literacy and arts education as it has been conceived and offer glimpses into what might be.
