Research Meeting Marianna Bolognesi
Event Date: March 17, 2015
Event Time: 9:00-11:00
During this research meeting, Marianna Bolognesi will introduce us to the study of visual metaphor.
Compared to the verbal modality of expression, visual metaphors have classically received less attention from the scientific community of cognitive linguists and cognitive scientists. During this presentation Marianna Bolognesi will talk about the functioning and variability of the visual modality of expression of metaphor, and the implications that this modality brings into the tenets of the Conceptual Metaphor Theory and the embodied account of cognition. Then, she will outline the Marie Curie project on visual vs verbal metaphors that she just started.
Dr. Marianna Bolognesi is a postdoc researcher at the Metaphor Lab. She recently started a Marie Curie project on the cognitive grounding of visual metaphor.
