Professor Gunther Kress is one of the international leading researchers in the fields of multimodality, social semiotics, discourse analysis, genre studies and education. He has published widely in these fields, and has a new book out in 2016: Multimodality, learning and communication: A social semiotic frame (written together with Jeff Bezemer). Kress has supervised more than 60 PhD researchers over the years, an experience that he draws upon in the chapter ‘Researching in conditions of provisionality: Reflecting on the PhD in the digital and multimodal era’ (2012). Anders Björkvall met up with him in London in order to discuss a number of topics, ranging from the broader challenges of higher education today to the relation between theory and methodology in the PhD.
