The Embodied Basis of Constructions in Greek and Latin

13th International Cognitive Linguistics Conference (ICLC-13), Newcastle (UK), July 20-25, 2015

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 7 septembre 2014

 

Submissions are invited for a theme session at the 13th International Cognitive Linguistics Conference (ICLC-13), Newcastle (UK), July 20-25, 2015. Theories of “embodiment” in cognitive linguistics and related disciplines have led to major advances in the understanding of linguistic meaning. A key claim is that the meanings of many linguistic units correspond, directly or indirectly through metaphorical extension, to recurring patterns of sensorimotor experience or “image schemas”, whose susceptibility of visual and kinesthetic transformations in mental space also accounts for synchronic and diachronic sense variation. Furthermore, in this view, units at all levels of linguistic structure – including or indeed above all grammatical constructions – are taken to be meaningful, insofar as these can be described in terms of symbolic pairings of schematic phonological or syntactic forms and conventionalized semantic or pragmatic meanings. Insights of the cognitive interdiscipline have scarcely penetrated Greek and Latin linguistics, however, where formalist (Chomskyan) and functionalist (Dikian) approaches continue to dominate (important exceptions are Fedriani 2014; Short 2013; Barðdal et al. 2012; Brucale and Mocciaro 2011, Luraghi 2010, 2003; and the papers in Short, forthcoming). Yet the rich metaphorical expression, highly complex grammatical structure, as well as elaborate – and very often multiple, seemingly functionally equivalent – syntactic constructions that characterize the classical languages would seem to provide fertile ground for cognitive linguistic analysis.

Legacy of Antiquity in Visual and Performing Arts

International Interdisciplinary Conference - University of Lodz 21-22 May 2015

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 31 janvier 2015

 

The visual is sorely undervalued in modern scholarship. Art history has attained only a fraction of the conceptual sophistication of literary criticism. Drunk with self-love, criticism has hugely overestimated the centrality of language to western culture. It has failed to see the electrifying sign language of images. — Camille Paglia

The human imagination needs to find the best medium to be expressed. It may be communicated in the form of words both in written or spoken code of signs and symbols. However, its expression by words is certainly limited and conceptually sophisticated, as it's been indicated by Camille Paglia. Therefore this conference aims to move the central point of the discussion within classical reception studies from words to visual objects. We are especially interested in visual, audio-visual and performing media in various forms of fine arts, cinematography and theatre. All these media are often inspired by the ancient Mediterranean culture, in its ideological or aesthetic context. We call for papers that describe or analyze the presence of this culture in the mentioned above visual and performing arts especially in the XXth and XXIst century, but the earlier reflections are also welcomed. The wide range of the topics aims to form dynamic trans-disciplinary relationships between scholars who work on ancient tradition and its modern reincarnations in contemporary culture and social life.

L'homme-animal dans les arts visuels

Deuxième rencontre TransImage

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 15 septembre 2014

 

Musée du quai Branly et MAE René-Ginouvès  - 9-10 décembre 2014

Le programme TransImage. Regards sur la dynamique des images depuis les origines (UMR 7041 ArScAn et Labex Les Passés dans le Présent de l'Université Paris Ouest – Nanterre) a retenu, comme premier thème de réflexion susceptible de rassembler des spécialistes d'aires culturelles très diverses, la problématique des créatures hybrides dans les arts figurés. Les disciplines impliquées pourront être anthropologie, archéologie, histoire de l'art.

Après une journée d'étude introductive consacrée à L'imaginaire du vol et ses représentations (musée du quai Branly, mars 2013), nous souhaitons pour cette deuxième manifestation nous intéresser aux modalités de la rencontre ou de la fusion entre l'humain et l'animal. Les créatures hybrides auxquelles manque l'élément humain ne seront donc pas prises en compte.

La composante visuelle de cette enquête étant essentielle, l'objectif premier sera d'explorer la façon dont l'hybridité homme-animal est traitée par les artistes et créateurs d'images à travers le monde, depuis la préhistoire et l'antiquité jusqu'à l'époque contemporaine, tout en s'interrogeant sur les raisons qui les poussent à parcourir ces frontières entre humanité et bestialité. On pourra inclure dans l'enquête les différents arts performatifs jouant sur l'hybridité homme-animal, de l'antiquité à nos jours.
