University of Cagliari

We are pleased to announce the 10th conference of the Association for
Researching and Applying Metaphor (RaAM), which will be held in
Cagliari, Island of Sardinia, Italy, from 20 to 23 June 2014.

The Association for Researching and Applying Metaphor welcomes
researchers from various theoretical approaches studying metaphor and
metonymy in different forms of expression and in different realms of
use in society (e.g., educational, political, commercial, artistic).
Contributors to the 2014 conference may approach metaphor and metonymy
from a variety of perspectives (including philosophical, cognitive,
discursive, cultural, pedagogical, social, etc.) and by applying a
variety of methods (including discourse analytical methods,
corpus-based methods, experimental methods, etc.)

The theme for 2014 is “Metaphor in Communication, Science and
Education”, and the keynote speakers in these three general areas are:

Communication: Gerard Steen (VU University Amsterdam, Netherlands)
Science: Silvano Tagliagambe (University of Cagliari, Italy)
Education: Graham Low (University of York, UK)

The conference will also include two workshops specifically dedicated
to metaphor in science: “Metaphor in Human Sciences” and “Metaphor in
Natural Sciences”.
