Public lecture by Dr Davide Castiglione: Verbal Images in Literature Database (VILD)


On Wednesday 27 March, 15:00-16:00, A7 (Canada) Room Dr Davide Castiglione will present (in English) a database of verbal images (VILD) that is one of the outcomes of his post-doc project ‘From verbal to mental: images in poetic discourse’ (project No 09.3.3-LMT-K-712-19-0204). This database is an ongoing project and contains manually annotated verbal images from a variety of writers, making it possible to find unique or related images based on both contextual and stylistic information. 

You can also attend the event remotely: you will find the link, as well as additional information, here >>

This event will be of interest to scholars in comparative literature, linguistics, and practicing writers, amongst others. There will also be a chance to collaborate to the project. An article on the database is about to appear in the next issue of the Spectrum magazine. The event is co-organized with the Department of English Philology, English Studies Programme and ARKSI.
