Meeting Description:

We are happy to announce the 5th specialised seminar of the International Association for Researching and Applying Metaphor (RaAM), which will take place on 10-12 June 2015 in Leiden, the Netherlands. The seminar will be hosted by the Leiden University Centre for Linguistics (LUCL).


The theme of the 2015 seminar is “Metaphors in/and/of Translation”. The goal of the seminar is to advance the study of metaphor (and other forms of figurative language) through the analysis of metaphors in and of translation. By considering how metaphors are translated in different domains of discourse (e.g., legal texts, literature, business communication and science), and how different tools (e.g., corpora, MIP(VU)) can be used to investigate real-world issues in translation theory, practice and education, the seminar aims to add to our understanding of metaphor as a matter of language, thought and communication in interlingual and intercultural settings. The seminar will promote multidisciplinary, cross-cultural research and collaboration and will encourage the use of different theoretical frameworks and research methods.

Plenary Speakers:

- Prof. Jean Boase-Beier, University of East Anglia (UK)
- Prof. Christina Schäffner, Aston University (UK)
- Dr. Dimitri Psurtsev, Moscow State Linguistic University (Russia)


The programme will combine plenary talks with a number of hands-on, real-world workshops. In addition, regular 20-minute paper presentations and a poster session will be organised.

Call for Abstracts:

Abstracts are invited for paper presentations and posters. Abstracts should be no more than 300 words (excluding references) and will need to be submitted via our seminar website (link to follow). All submissions will be reviewed by an international scientific committee. 

Important Dates:

The deadline for abstracts is 5 December 2014. 
Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent by 19 January 2015.

Please visit our website for further details.
