THINKING COLORS: PERCEPTION, TRANSLATION AND REPRESENTATION. Ed. by Victoria Bogushevskaya and Elisabetta Colla. Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Newcastle upon Tyne, 2015. 280 pp. ISBN 9781443875295 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: The essays collected into this volume are organized into five interrelated sections exploring discourse on the interaction between sensation, perceptions of color and the various forms of their cultural representation. The contributors analyse aspects related to color 'labelling', its mediation and representation, consider traditional and new approaches to color, and explore the cultural productivity of color across different fields. Color is presented within a conceptual framework that fosters alliances between the humanities and the social and natural sciences. Part I is dedicated to studying color from a cognitive perspective, while Part II contains essays dealing with issues surrounding the translation of color lexicons and covers topics such as the Chinese qing macro-color category and color metonymy in advertising. The papers grouped together in Part III explore the negotiation that occurs between colors and literature in a masterpiece of Chinese literary criticism Wenxin Diaolong (The Literary Mind and the Carving of Dragons) by Liu Xie, color metaphors in Homeric epics, and finally the interpretation of color in modern Portuguese youth novels.
