The Annual Review of Cognitive Linguistics, published by John Benjamins
under the auspices of the Spanish Cognitive Linguistics Association,
invites contributions for a special issue to be published in 2013 under the
title 'Multimodality and Cognitive Linguistics'.
The aim of this Special Issue is to advance our theoretical and empirical
understanding of the relationship between Multimodality and Cognitive
The turn of the millennium has brought an increasing interest in
multimodality, in the relationship between different semiotic modes leading
to the creation of multimodal texts. There is a variety of studies dealing
with different aspects of multimodal analysis but there seems to be a gap
concerning its relationship with Cognitive Linguistics.
Gibbons (2010) provides a set of critical tools for analyzing the cognitive
impact of multimodal literature. In Jewitt (2009) there is an insight into
how a variety of theoretical approaches have looked at multimodal
communication and representation, including visual studies, anthropology
and socio-linguistics among other disciplines. Ventola and Moya (2009)
discuss the relationship between the discourses that 'tell' and visuals
that 'show'. Jones and Ventola (2008) explore the ways in which
multimodality influence the work of linguists, linguistic description and
application. Forceville and Urios Aparisi (2009) discuss metaphors drawing
on combinations of visuals, language, gestures, sound, and music.
O'Halloran (2011) proposes a distinct multimodal studies field as both the
mapping of a domain of enquiry, and as the site of the development of
theories, descriptions and methodologies specific to and adapted for the
study of multimodality.
Focus of this special issue
Within this theoretical background, this special issue invites papers which
analyse and highlight the importance of multimodal resources in the field
of cognitive linguistics and applied to different genres, such as digital
media, webgames, comics, cartoons (editorial or political), picture books,
poetry, billboards or advertising in general to name only a few. Papers
addressing the interaction of different semiotic modes, such as words,
images, sounds, music, gesture or the use of space are welcome, focusing on
the cognitive mechanisms and sociocultural elements involved in the
creation and interpretation of the different genres under analysis.
Deadlines and submission process
Abstracts (max. 500 words) should be sent to MariaJesus.Pinaruclm.es
before January 23rd. They should be original works not published or being
considered for publication elsewhere and be accompanied by a biographical
note (50-75 words).
