Research interests

Chara's main research interests fall under the broad umbrella of pragmatics, that is the study of meaning in context. She is interested in the connection between linguistics, philosophy and emotions and how we express and infer the ineffable in various artistic media and more specifically, in the Parthenon Marbles.

Her MA thesis was a comparative study on how neurotypicals and high functioning autistic individuals interpret the ineffable in literature in terms of affect and mental imagery. Regardless of autism, the ineffable qualities in literary quotes seem to trigger "beyond meaning" effects, which take the form of either affective effects or mental images. This thesis provided the stimulus to investigate further "beyond meaning" effects and the ineffable in different types of art.
