Research interests

Chara Vlachaki's main research interests fall under the broad umbrella of pragmatics, that is the study of meaning in context. More specifically, she is interested in the connection between linguistics, philosophy and literature. One way that these three domains intersect is through the ineffable, which includes every aspect of communication that cannot be fully linguistically expressed. 

Her MA thesis was a comparative study on how neurotypicals and individuals with Asperger's 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 translated literary works.
