Research

My research is concerned with metaphors. While the word 'metaphor' reminds people of literature and poetry, metaphorical language is all around us. For instance, in "Wall Street has been hitting new peaks" and "prices remain high", prices are not physically higher and there are no mountaintops that Wall Street is literally touching. Because we understand what it means to be at a higher location, we also understand the use of 'high' and 'peaks' in more abstract contexts. This sort of metaphor use is a window onto the ways we think about and understand the world, and how we represent thoughts through language.

Teaching

I am involved in BA and MA programs (English and International Communication, Minor in English, Multimodal Communication) and the Research Master Program
