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 recognized, 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.
The festival workshop on Saturday, 30 August, will be a joint effort devoted to the analysis of metaphors in texts, and chaired by Andrew Goatly, Professor Emeritus of Lingnan University, Hong Kong. This year’s workshop will not be based on papers submitted in advance, but instead focus on interaction and discussion.
