I’m happy to announce the recent publication of the book
“Embodied Metaphors in Film, Television, and Video Games: Cognitive Approaches”, edited by Kathrin Fahlenbrach, London/New York: Routledge.
The book documents the increasing research on gestalt based, embodied metaphors in cognitive film and media studies during the last years – especially by scholars of SCSMI. The works collected here prove that cognitive metaphor research applied to film-, and media studies offers a rich spectrum of fine-grained instruments to examine embodied meanings in audiovisual media. As it is equally demonstrated, cognitive metaphor research deals with a core domain of popular moving images: to affect people with dense compositions of visions, sounds, and movements in a manner that is both bodily and cognitively appealing.
It would be wonderful if the volume could inspire still more research on cognition, embodiment and metaphors in moving images!
