Linguistics/Cognitive Semiotics Seminar – Image Schemas and Embodied Meaning

Linguistics/Cognitive Semiotics Seminar:

« Image Schemas and Embodied Meaning »

Mark Johnson, University of Oregon

We are happy to have a presentation in our joint « Linguistics and Cognitive Semiotics » seminar by one of the leading researchers in Cognitive Linguistics, and arguably the one to bring the greatest philosophical depth in the field. « The Body in the Mind » (Johnson 1987) introduced one of the foundational notions: Image Schemas, which are a precondition for the even more famous notion of Conceptual Metaphors, which Prof. Johnson developed together with George Lakoff and collaborators. All students and faculty from Lund University and elsewhere are welcome to the zoom link. But please enter from 15:00 CET with cameras on, and be prepared to present your self. The talk will start at 15:15 and last about one hour, followed by 45 minutes discussion.
