Making Known Differently: Engaging Visual Modalities as Spaces to Author New Selves
Vasudevan, Lalitha
E-Learning, v3 n2 p207-216 2006
In the increasingly digital and multimodal landscape of adolescents' literacies, it is particularly interesting to explore how young people are making and remaking their identities in online and offline spaces. These self-authoring practices are especially significant when the authors are African American adolescent boys, whose lives are often storied by others. This article brings the lenses of counterstorytelling and multimodality together to explore one boy's re-presentation of his multiple selves through his engagement with various technologies and the production of visual texts. (Contains 3 notes and 3 figures.)
