Wandering through Virtual Communities: The Awe of Composition Spaces that Explore Identities through Multimodal Technologies

Session abstract or description: 

This panel examines the intersections of digital spaces, marginalized identities, and multimodal technologies. By assessing how digital spaces interact with marginalized identities and voices, the presenters create a better understanding of the awe and wonder experienced by users while wandering and taking journeys through communities and multimodal spaces. As an audience explores videogames, virtual organizing communities, or websites with first-person narratives, that audience must interact not only with the subject material, but also with themselves through the examination of identity, culture, and narrative, creating a wandering of the mind.
