Linguistic Field(s): Pragmatics 

Call Deadline: 08-Oct-2016 

Meeting Description:

This panel examines the links between social experiences and emotions and
their representation and positioning as shared identities in visual or
multimodal discourse. The papers in this panel are meant to explore how
knowledge is perceived, shared and understood via iconic communication (see
Barker and Yazdani 2000) by different individuals and/or social groups with
diverse cultural backgrounds across separated geographies. Thus, the sharing
of experiences embedded in the verbal-visual discourse becomes universally
understood realities. 

The panel intends to include a diversity of approaches to the study of
multimodal communication from art, cinema to contemporary social media. It
intends to contrast a diversity of approaches including Systemic Functional
Perspectives (O’Halloran 2004), Semiotic Approaches (Kress and Van Leeuwen
2001) and Conceptual Metaphor theory. In particular, we would like to focus on
how metaphors and other conceptual processes can be shared and emerged in the
collective interactions following studies on metaphor and conceptualization in
cinema (e.g. Fahlenbrach 2016) or in other contexts of interaction such as
social media, telecinematic discourse, comics and other visual arts (see
Forceville and Urios-Aparisi 2009).
