Facing metaphors as the most complex iconic signs: Toward a synthetic analysis of figuration in Greek street art

The topic of iconicity continues to be highly relevant for the study of language (in both spoken and signed forms) and literature, but also for other semiotic systems and media involving gesture, depiction and music, and for interdisciplinary fields such as intermediality studies, cognitive science and cognitive semiotics. The theme of the 12th Symposium is therefore Iconicity in Cognition and across Semiotic Systems.
