Taking classes on gesture and meaning across modalities.

Clara Cuonzo has received support to attend the winter edition of the St. Petersburg Institute of Linguistics, Cognition and Culture, held virtually January 18-29. She is taking two courses, one on "how meaning is expressed through various channels in spoken and written communication (words and their parts, gestures, facial expressions, prosody, modulations of typed and handwritten text, emoji), and how the various bits of meaning thus expressed come together at different levels of representation," by Maria Esipova (Oslo), and one by Andrew Nevins (UCL) and Naomi Francis (Oslo) on "parallels between gesture and prosody [as well as] the intellectual history of studies of gesture prior to the 20th century."
