Welcome to the Journal of Multimodal Rhetorics

The Journal of Multimodal Rhetorics, or JOMR, is a completely online, open-access journal featuring essays and other items that examine multimodality in all of its cultural, material, temporal, and pedagogical manifestations. While we do welcome work that focuses on the digital, we stress that multimodality does not automatically refer to digital tools or the use of specific (new) media. We are especially interested in perspectives that complicate typical views of multimodality and that highlight those traditional multimodal practices and praxes that sustain our cultures and everyday lives. We welcome compositions that draw attention to the political dimensions of under/privileged modes and the ways that media perpetuate or contest dominant attitudes and hegemonic norms.

We encourage authors to take advantage of our online presence to use hyperlinks, images (with permission or Creative Commons), video, podcasts, and other elements. (If you’re unsure, just drop us a line.) However, please note that all images should include alt-text, all video should include captions and transcriptions, and podcasts should be accompanied by transcriptions. Additional uses of media are welcome as well.

All essays undergo anonymous peer review by at least two members of our review board. Essays should not be under consideration elsewhere and must not have been published elsewhere. Authors retain all rights to their work and may reprint and circulate as they wish, although we ask that they note its publication in JOMR.
