Natural Media & Engineering: Prof. Irene Mittelberg will hold a workshop on metaphor and metonymy in painting at the upcoming

8th International Conference on Researching and Applying Metaphor (RaAM8) at VU University Amsterdam

 (30 June - 3 July, 2010)

The aim of this workshop is to explore cognitive-semiotic principles in prints and paintings stemming from different eras and art schools. Participants are guided through the discovery of image schemata, metaphors and metonymies as the basis for structure recognition and meaning-making processes in the interpretation of creative expressions of the human mind.
