Brief CV (for Russian, Indonesian, French, and Albanian translation, scroll downwards)

Charles Forceville was born in Heemstede, NL, in 1959. He studied English at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, where after graduating he taught in the English, comparative literature, and Word & Image departments. From 1996-1998 he did a post-doc "Narration in Fiction and Film" at the University of Leyden. Currently he works in the Media Studies department of the Universiteit van Amsterdam, where he is associate professor. He serves as member of the advisory boards of Metaphor and Symbol , Journal of Pragmatics , Public Journal of Semiotics , Atlantis , Lodz Papers in Pragmatics, and the Benjamins series Review of Cognitive Linguistics and Cognitive Linguistic Studies of Language and Cognition in Cultural Contexts. Forceville was programme director of the Research Master Media Studies from 2004-2012 and chairs the ASCA project AIM/Structure & Rhetoric in Multimodal Discourse (see the "Adventures in Multimodality"/AIM blog at ) .  From 2005-2008 he was external examiner of the MPhil Text and Visual Studies (TVS) at Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland. Apart from publishing scholarly articles and book chapters, he wrote some 200 reviews of English-language fiction for the Dutch national newspaper Trouw (1987-2007). The volume Multimodal Metaphor  (Mouton De Gruyter), co-edited with Eduardo Urios-Aparisi, appeared in September 2009. In 2008 he was given the opportunity, together with Kurt Feyaerts and Tony Veale, to spend six months as visiting fellow at VLAC (Vlaamse Academie/Royal Flemish Academy) in Brussels, Belgium, to work on the project The Agile Mind: Creativity in Models and Multimodal Discourse.  An edited volume on the topic appeared in 2013 with Mouton de Gruyter. Forceville spent a sabbatical at the university of Lund, Sweden (hosted by Carita Paradis) in teh autumn of 2014, to work on a monograph showing how relevance theory can be applied to mass-communicative visuals; and on volume  Visual Argumentation, co-edited with Assimakis Tseronis.

He regularly uploads pre-prints of papers and chapters on his UvA-Dare, and Researchgate profiles.

Scholarly background and beliefs

"Educated in a literature and linguistics department, I thrived on a passion for literature. But gradually I found the activity of interpreting literary works, while an enjoyable and important pursuit, no longer satisfied my scholarly ambitions. Adopting the Cognitive Linguistics' work on metaphor I developed a model of pictorial metaphor ( Pictorial Metaphor in Advertising, Routledge 1996). Since my appointment as lecturer and researcher in Media Studies, my research has broadened from pictorial metaphor to multimodal metaphor, from static representations to moving images, and from advertising to other popular art forms, such as comics and animation. Over the past few years my work is shifting from multimodal metaphor per se to multimodal discourse (see: ).

While I see text-based analyses of contemporary representations (literature, advertising, comics, cartoons, film) as basic to my scholarly work, my goal, in the broadest sense, is to contribute to cognitivist theories of the image and of multimodal discourses. I strive to make my work both theoretically insightful and practically applicable and attempt to formulate my findings in such a way as to enable verification and falsification as well as to provide starting points for empirical testing. I consider it crucial to demonstrate that humanities-oriented research focusing on art and popular culture is of interest to work that is being done in the social sciences - and vice versa. In my view, sociobiology offers excellent opportunities for further researching "gene-culture co-evolution. Relevance Theory and narratology profoundly influence my scholarly work."

Keywords in research and teaching 

Multimodal metaphor, multimodal rhetoric & narrative, narrative across media, relevance theory, genre, documentary film, animation, comics & cartoons.

I am interested in supervising BA, MA and PhD theses and post-doc work about a wide range of topics pertaining to multimodal discourse involving visuals. My preference is for candidates who like problem-driven research, aim for a clear methodology, and are prepared to do systematic text-based analysis.

Prospective PhD candidates need to be aware of two important practicalities: (1) I can only supervise candidates that will eventually defend their PhD-thesis at the University of Amsterdam; (2) Unfortunately I do not have, at present, financial resources, which means that candidates need to havefellowships, grants, or other sources of income to support themselves during 3-4 years (or at least a substantial portion of that period) to work and live in Amsterdam.
