|Meeting Description:||Stockholm 2013 Metaphor Festival (SMF)
Thursday 29 to Saturday 31 August
The Stockholm Metaphor Festival is an annual conference on the use of figurative language and other modes of figurative expression, arranged by the Department of English at Stockholm University. It brings together researchers from a broad range of academic disciplines, working within different theoretical and methodological paradigms in a creative, internationally oriented, and friendly atmosphere. The importance of figurative language and figurative semiotics is now generally recognised, and the Festival offers an opportunity to present and learn about research findings concerning figurative uses in different types of human communication, and their cognitive, cultural, narrative, poetic, rhetorical, social, textual or discourse functions.
At the 2013 Festival we are also planning two workshops on Saturday 31 August, one on Connections and Interaction between Different Types of Figures of Speech, and another one on Extensions of Metaphor, led by Bo Pettersson, University of Helsinki.
