Metaphor co-creation in conversations
How do groups co-create metaphors in conversations? And what role does gesture play? Using six semi-structured conversations, I am analyzing metaphors for knowledge in language, in gesture and in a structure that each group makes out of LEGO bricks. In this session I will briefly present my approach and findings as well as a number of gesture examples to analyze and discuss on the spot. Linda Greve – MA of Theology and Rhetorics. PhD-scholar at Department of Business Communication, Aarhus University, Denmark – will touch on these issues and more in her talk. Please join us!
