The UACS School of Foreign Languages has the pleasure to invite you to a CEEPUS Linguistics lecture titled “Categorization of emotion verbs in English in comparison with Slavic languages”by Dr. Agnieszka Bedkowska-Kopczyk, University of Graz, Austria

The lecture will be delivered on Thu, 20 February 2020, in 3D, at 12 (noon time).

Short bio of the lecturer:

Agnieszka Bedkowska-Kopczyk is a Slavic linguist with an M.A. degree in Slavic Philology (1995) and a Ph.D. degree in Humanities (2000) – both obtained at the Silesian University (Poland). She is currently employed as an assistant professor at the Department of Slavic Languages at the University of Graz (Austria) where she teaches courses on language and culture. From 2000 to 2014 she had worked at Polish universities in Katowice and Bielsko-Biala.

In 2012 she conducted a post-doctoral research at the University of Oslo within a project “Spatial basis of emotion concepts in Slavic and Germanic languages”. She specializes in comparative studies of Slavic languages with special focus on Slovene and Polish. Her research interests concern the understanding of how our cognitive abilities and cultural experience give rise to linguistic expressions. Her studies are carried out in the theoretical framework of cognitive and cultural linguistics. Currently she is working on two projects: 1) A typology of constructions based on motion-emotion metaphors in Slavic languages and 2) Key words of Slavic cultures. Through regular participation in staff mobility programs, she has acquired experience of teaching linguistic courses for foreign students in Slovenia, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Denmark and Norway.

The event is open to everyone. We look forward to seeing you at the lecture!
