Professor Theo van Leeuwen – The Master of Social Semiotics and Multimodalilty

I felt so delighted when one of my PhD students shared this video with me. Professor Theo van Leeuwen was my supervisor when I did my PhD at Cardiff University, UK. My research was on the Generic Structure of Cooperate Websites. The focus was on the multimodal design of multinational company websites. And I am currently supervising PhD studies on applying Systemic Functional Linguistics and Multimodality to various social contexts, for example, education, media, tourism, advertisements and you name it.

Dr. Hanita Hassan is an associate professor and she is currently the Chair of Language Academy, Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, UTM. She teaches Language and Communication Theories, Multimodal Discourse and ELT to postgraduate students. Her research interests include Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL), multimodality, language in media, intercultural communication and ELT methodology. Currently, she is involved in two research projects: CEFR and language disabilities.
