Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce a specialized seminar of the international
Association for Researching and Applying Metaphor (RaAM), which will be
held at Palacio de Valdeparaíso (Almagro, Spain) 5-7 May 2011.
As an association, RaAM strives to advance the study of metaphor,
metonymy and other aspects of figurative thought and expression, with a
commitment to the application of metaphor research to 'real world' issues. In
the present seminar, the theme will be 'Metaphor across Time and Genre'.
We intend to highlight the socio-cultural and the discursive quality of
metaphor, as well as the fact that it extends over various timescales and is
manifested in different kinds of situated social practices (i.e. genres)
conventionally used by discourse communities.
The seminar will be organized in a vertical manner, in that there will only be
one session held at a time. Our main aim is to get people to attend
everything, as well as chat, make contacts, renew old ones, and have fun,
plus have time to discuss their own research with everybody.

Call For Papers

The seminar will be organized in a vertical manner, in that there will only be
one session held at a time. Our main aim is to get people to attend
everything, as well as chat, make contacts, renew old ones, and have fun,
plus have time to discuss their own research with everybody. The event will
feature three plenary lectures:
-Dirk Geraeerts (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven)
-Elena Semino (University of Lancaster)
-Eve Sweetser (University of California, Berkeley)
We will also have keynote talks by:
-Kathryn Allan (University College London)
-Antonio Barcelona (University of Cordoba)
-Enrique Bernardez (Complutense University, Madrid)
-Jonathan Charteris-Black (University of the West of England)
-Iraide Ibarretxe (University of Zaragoza)
-Veronica Koller (University of Lancaster)
-Gitte Kristiansen (Complutense University, Madrid)
-Farzad Sharifian (Monash University, Australia)
-Javier Valenzuela (University of Murcia)
-Awaiting confirmation from tenth speaker

We are soliciting abstracts for 20-minute papers and for poster
presentations. Given the vertical format of the seminar, spots for oral
presentations will likely be quite competitive. In other words, reviewers will
be asked to identify the submissions that seem most likely to generate
broad interest due to originality of ideas or significance to the field. For this
reason, posters are highly encouraged, and one hour will be reserved in the
programme so that poster authors can introduce their work orally. The
poster session will be permanently on display throughout the seminar.
Abstracts should be no more than 500 words (excluding references) and
must specify whether they belong to oral presentations or to posters.
Abstracts for both papers and posters must be sent to
raam.seminarmobilearn.es.
Authors are encouraged to use the template for abstracts available at
http://www.uclm.es/actividades/2011/raam/abstracttemplate.rtf. For any
queries, send a mail to the chairs of the seminar: Rosario Caballero
(MRosario.Caballerouclm.es) and Javier Diaz-Vera
(JavierEnrique.Diazuclm.es).
The deadline for abstracts is 15 December 2010. Notification of acceptance
decisions will be sent by 1 February 2011.
The registration fee is €90 and covers the book of abstracts, social
programme, coffee breaks and two wine receptions.
Finally, we hope to be able to provide transportation from Madrid or from
Ciudad Real to Almagro. Further details on this will be posted on the
seminar's webpage (http://www.uclm.es/actividades/2011/raam/). We will
also provide travel and accommodation information in due time.
