My research combines cognitive linguistics with the philosophy of mind and psychiatry. I am currently looking at the way in which different perspectives are represented in spoken or written stories, with a specific focus on the narratives of people with a schizophrenia diagnosis. I hope to learn more about epistemic isolation and the (inter)subjective experience of psychiatric patients by zooming in on the stories they tell. How are different perspectives represented and distinguished in these narratives? And what do they express with respect to the relation between the ‘self’ and the (social) environment?
