Gestures as ‘as-if actions’: Hands on analysis of political debates.

Eye tracking basics in linguistic and multimodal research
Maria Kiose, Olga Prokofieva
What do our eyes do when we read the text or look at the picture? Do their movements betray what attracts our attention or causes misunderstanding? What are the indicators of successful interpretation and how can we detect them? These are the questions we are going to discuss at the Master-class. Already aware of what eye events, areas of interest and trajectory lines are, but never had a trial? Here we will also simulate the eyetracking experiment with YOU as its active participant and a member of the research group. You will take part in the eyetracking equipment adjustment, experiment processing, data analysis and discussion.
The Force of Multimodal Metaphors
Olga Iriskhanova, Alexandra Gulenkova, Alexandra Galkina
Fasten your seat belts! We are starting an exciting journey to
investigate how our mind works when we build metaphoric
meanings. Our experienced team (pilot Olga Iriskhanova, co-pilots
Alexandra Gulenkova and Alexandra Galkina) will show you the
beautiful landscapes of words, pictures, and gestures that blend
into a Metaphor. You will learn how to navigate in diverse
multimodal environments – to recognize, analyze, and improvise
metaphors. Most delicious food for thought will be served on board, which will
boost your analytical skills and creative thinking!
