Scope: Mind, language and metaphor is a new conference series that will explore the 
role of metaphor and metonymy in language and thought. This first conference will 
consider points of convergence between three major fields of contemporary research: 
figurative language, imagination and consciousness. It will consider such questions 
as: the role of conscious and unconscious processes in metaphor production and 
interpretation; the role of 'seeing as' in the development of consciousness; 
interactions between imagination, perception and cognition; and how bodily and neural
 processes create and constrain the imagination. The aim is to generate a new 
understanding of the relationship between consciousness and the imagination. 
Cross-linguistic data and research into all European languages is particularly 
encouraged.

The conference is open to researchers world-wide, whether from industry or academia. 
Participation will be limited to 100. The emphasis will be on discussion about new 
developments. The conference fee covers registration, full board and lodging. Grants 
will be available, in particular for nationals under 35, from EU or Associated States.

Deadline: 1st February 2002.
