The philologist Cristóbal Pagán Cánovas, researcher of the Institute for Culture and Society (ICS) of the University of Navarra, has been appointed Fellow of the Institute of Advanced programs of study of Humanities (IASH) of the University of Edinburgh (Scotland), the campus most important in Europe in the field of Linguistics -and third in the world- according to the QS World University Ranking prepared annually by the newspaper The Times.

Dr. Pagán will spend six months in the spring and summer of 2015. This is part of the agreement signed with the BBVA Foundation, which recently granted him an financial aid of 40,000 euros for his project EMOCCC, the first diachronic study of the poetic expression of emotions in Greek poetry over 28 centuries, from Homer to the present day. His application was one of the 56 selected among the 1,664 received.

This research is framed in the field of work of Cristóbal Pagán, focused on cognitive linguistics, cognitive poetics, analysis of speech, Greek Philology , comparative literature and cognitive science.

Specifically, the researcher of the ICS will carry out his stay together with Professor Douglas Cairns, from the project 'History of Distributed Cognition' of the IASH, a line that deals with the understanding of cognition from classical antiquity to the present day.
