Originally a scholar of multimodal social semiotics with special interest in corporate logos and corporate identity design, over the past decade Christian Mosbæk Johannessen has ventured ever deeper into the intersection between semiotics, media studies, materiality studies, ecological psychology and cognitive science. His main empirical interest is our embodied experience of graphic traces. He has recently published a co-edited book (with Theo van Leeuwen) entitled The materiality of Writing. A Trace Making Perspective.
Christian’s fields of research include ecosocial multimodal semiotics and the materiality of graphics.
