Meeting Description:

RaAM6 is an interdisciplinary conference, welcoming work from any relevant
discipline and using any theory that highlights the many and complex roles of
metaphor in real world contexts.

Researching and Applying Metaphor: Ten years on.
Conference to be held at the University of Leeds
10 - 12 April, 2006.


This sixth conference in the RaAM series returns to Yorkshire, UK to celebrate
10 years of Researching and Applying Metaphor.

Theme: Metaphor in the real world.

The 10th anniversary RaAM conference aims to look back over a decade and five
successful international RaAM conferences in order to assess key developments in
our particular area of metaphor studies.

RaAM began as a small seminar in York in January 1996, funded by the British
Association for Applied Linguistics and Cambridge University Press. A key
feature of that first meeting was the exploration of the nature and use of
metaphor in naturally-occurring discourse data. The ''applying'' in the title
refers to our commitment to using research to address and to try to ameliorate
'real world' issues and situations.

For RaAM6 we wish to preserve the characteristics of friendliness and equality
that have made previous RaAM events different from many other academic
conferences: it is an opportunity to meet people and talk shop in a supportive way.
