Session abstract or description: 

In this panel presentation, three speakers address how digital identities are extensions of the body, not escapes. We explore the different ways we have each used bodies as a framework for developing and assigning multimodal texts in our writing classes as well as the critical awareness that surrounds this work for us and our students. First, we establish a framework that considers how bodies function in the process of digital multimodal composition as active participants in the role of composer as well as potential contributing elements to the composition as a whole. Then we specifically discuss our uses of Twitter and personal websites to transgress bodily identities.
