Cuffari Co-Writes Article on Metaphoricity in ‘Metaphor and Symbol’

October 14, 2014
By: Worcester State University News

Elena Cuffari (Philosophy) was recently published in the current issue of Metaphor and Symbol.  The article, titled “Doubleness in Experience: Toward a Distributed Enactive View of Metaphoricity,” offers a new account of metaphorical meaning as a distinct, emergent, and complexly co-authored aspect of the coordination processes that constitute social interaction.

Cuffari and her co-author also propose a new methodology for working with video data of real-time conversational interactions in institutional settings and for tracing the emergence of metaphor across participants and modalities.

The article is the outcome of a year-long collaborative work with Professor Thomas Wiben Jensen and a few research stays at the Center for Human Interactivity within the Department of Language and Communication at the University of Southern Denmark.
