Also, recent years have prompted a new set of questions, primarily about the interplay between language, image, and materiality in a whole range of multimodal artifacts, and especially about the conceptual underpinnings of their interpretation. We need to explain how we process artifacts as diverse as Shakespearean theatre on the one hand and posters raising the awareness of climate change on the other. Professor Dancygier will demonstrate how processing discourse in a broad range of forms relies on several mechanisms of meaning-construction.

Cognitive poetics, a relatively new discipline, suggests that interpretation of various artifacts, primarily but not exclusively textual ones, relies on conceptualizations prompted by forms used — words, images, sounds, etc. This paper looks at examples of texts, image and film, to consider avenues of interpretation prompted by conceptual structures much less specific than words or visual artifacts. However, evidence of the underlying conceptual structures in meaning emergence is primarily linguistic, and thus requires some independent confirmation. Looking at textual artifacts alongside visual ones offers an opportunity to confirm the role of schemas through an additional modality — if images and text depend on the same schema to suggest similar meanings, this offers additional evidence of the role of such concepts.
Institute of Advanced Study. Professor Barbara Dancygier Every university I know talks about interdisciplinarity, every university wants to do it, but most places and institutions I have seen are not quite sure either what it means or how it can be achieved.

With in-depth coverage of the research questions, basic concepts, and various theoretical approaches, the Handbook addresses newly emerging subfields and shows their contribution to the discipline. The Handbook introduces fields of study that have become central to cognitive linguistics, such as conceptual mappings and construction grammar.
