Language − Literature − the Arts: A Cognitive-Semiotic Interface


Edited By Elżbieta Chrzanowska-Kluczewska and Olga Vorobyova

The book offers an interdisciplinary discussion of the cognitive-semiotic interface between language, literature, and the arts, with a special focus on creativity and imagination. It brings together international contributors suggesting a wide range of innovative perspectives on the correlation between verbal discourse and creative artefacts. The book reveals the specificity of such phenomena as parallax, transparency, corporeal imagination, and multimodality. Alongside interpreting artistic texts, the contributors search for cognitive and semiotic manifestations of creativity in political and everyday discourse.

MADELEINE CAMPBELL is a writer, independent researcher and translator. She completed her PhD at the University of Glasgow in 2014, for which she translated Algerian Author Mohammed Dib (1920–2003) and explored, in collaboration with creative artists, translation as a performative rather than representational act.

Her translations of Maghrebi poets have been published in the University of California Book of North African Literature (2012), Scottish Poetry in Translation (2013) and Modern Poetry in Translation (Spring 2016).
