New face at IMC

2018.12.06 | Anne-Mette Pedersen


Paola Columbano is a MA student in Semiotics at the University of Bologna. She was granted to spend two months, December and January, at the Interacting Minds Centre to conduct a research for her MA Thesis with Riccardo Fusaroli.

The aim of her project is to exploit the cognitive semiotics approach to shed light on potential anomalies in interactions between parents and infants with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), in a normal daily context of primary intersubjectivity. The analysis focuses on differences in parent-child interactions between neurotypical and with ASD infants, evaluating the embodied and enactive level. Her interests concern developmental semiotics, philosophy of mind and embodiment.

Paola will stay in the office 1483-318 – drop in and say hello!
