    Topic Notes: Over more than a decade, super-linguistics has established itself as a research program that applies to other empirical materials techniques that were developed for the analysis of spoken and signed languages. The seminar looks at both empirical and theoretical issues in this program. Representative topics include gestures (including pointing and co-speech gestures), cross-frame co-reference in visual narratives, emoji, dance, free perception constructions, speech and thought bubbles, point of view in film and comics, warning and instructional signs, iconic conventions in manga, music semantics, temporal progression in visual narratives. Methodologies include possible worlds semantics, dynamic semantics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, experimental psychology, philosophy of language and mind, film theory, comics studies, art history. Readings are drawn from contemporary literature. Background material is covered as needed.
