Meeting Description:

XXVII AESLA International Conference:
'Ways and Modes of Human Communication'

Call for Papers

Round Table:
"The Languages of the Body and the Soul: Narratives, Multimodality, and Embodiment"

In his _Varieties of Religious Experience_ (1902), William James described one
of the characteristics of mystical experience as being that of "ineffability",
or the sense of inefficacy of language to describe spiritual experiences.
Despite this fact, humans effectively do communicate these phenomena in a
variety of ways, using such cognitive processes and linguistic instruments as
categories, metaphors and metonymies, images, and other figurative language.

This round table wishes to investigate the cognitive-semiotic processes and
products of human communication within the realm of religious and spiritual
discourse, whether it be in written literature, oral narratives, gestures, film,
or other means of multimodal representations, particularly in relationship to
the concept of embodiment, as described by cognitive linguistics and psychology.

Proposals in English or Spanish (max. 500 words, figures and references apart)
must be submitted to Vito Evola berkeley.edu> in RTF, DOC or PDF format
no later than October 20th, 2008. Authors will be contacted by the end of
October with regards to the acceptance or rejection of their proposals for the
round table. There will be the possibility of contributing an extended version
of the submissions (approx. 2500 words, references included) in the Conference
Proceedings book.

Important: Both the round table proposal and the individual contributions will
undergo independent reviewing by the AESLA program committee. If a proposal has
not been accepted for the round table, it may be submitted later for the general
