29 - 30 March 2019, "The Creative Power of Metaphor", Oxford, England

Date: 29 - 30 March 2019
Location: Oxford, England
Deadline: Wednesday 31 October 2018

Join us for an innovative 2-day conference on the nexus between Metaphor, Linguistic Diversity, and Creativity.

The conference will be structured around four themes. Each theme will be introduced in a keynote lecture, and developed in a plenary round-table discussion featuring selected panelists. Panelists will address general questions as well as questions raised by the audience. Moreover, two extensive Poster sessions will be dedicated to present specific studies related to the four themes.

Themes:
- Metaphor and Linguistic Diversity (keynote speaker: Lera Boroditsky)
- Metaphor and Emotion (keynote speaker: Zoltán Kövecse)
- Metaphor and Communication (keynote speaker: Gerard Steen)
- Metaphor and Creativity (keynote speaker: Rachel Giora)

 

We invite abstracts (max. 300 words) for poster presentations that are relevant to one or more of the four themes of the conference. We also invite expressions of interest in participation in the panel discussions. We welcome submissions from early career researchers to both panels and posters.
