Touch-based interaction with digital interfaces

Jewitt, Carey Touch-based interaction with digital interfaces. [Teaching Resource] (Unpublished)

PDF (Powerpoint Presentation NCRM Research Methods Festival Oxford)


The corporeal practices of any particular period relate to the cultural context of the time, and this relationship changes under the influence of different factors. Modes like touch in different historical cultural moments retreat, occupy different spaces, and interactional domains. There is, MODE argues, a contemporary moving away from vision as THE model for all perception and interaction. Against this backdrop, there is a need for a social research perspective on touch to understand its communicative potential. This presentation makes a case for attending to touch, and asks how multimodality can help to analyse touch.
