We are pleased to announce the second call for papers for the conference "Schemas in Language, Music, and Visual Cognition," to be held on December 6th and 7th 2024, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Niš, Serbia. The event aims to gather linguists, psychologists, philosophers, neuroscientists, music, visual cognition, and multimodality researchers interested in schematic structures underlying (conceptual) meaning construction from any theoretical perspective (formal, functional, or eclectic). The phenomena of interest include, but are not limited to, image schemas, conceptual primitives, scripts, cross-modal correspondences, conceptual metaphors, metonymies and blends, semantic frames, mental and simulation models, and multimodal aspects of schematic meaning generation.
