Meeting Description:

The 9th conference on Researching and Applying Metaphor (RaAM 9) will be held in
Lancaster, UK, from 4-7 July 2012. The theme for 2012 is 'Metaphor in Mind and
Society', and confirmed plenary speakers are Masako Hiraga, Albert Katz and
Andreas Musolff. There will be pre-conference workshops on corpus linguistics
methods in metaphor analysis (facilitated by Anatol Stefanowitsch) and on
methods of researching metaphor and gesture (facilitated by Irene Mittelberg and
Cornelia Mueller). In addition to the social programme, the event will also
involve a book launch as well as a metaphor-themed exhibition and performance in
cooperation with the Lancaster Institute of Contemporary Arts.

The international Association for RaAM (http://www.raam.org.uk/Home.html)
welcomes researchers from various theoretical approaches studying metaphor and
metonymy in different of forms of expression (not just language but also, for
example, designed artefacts or performed works) and realms of use in society
(e.g., educational, political, commercial, artistic).

We will send out a call for papers and details on the abstract submission
process later in the summer; meanwhile please visit


or email raam2012lancaster.ac.uk for further information.

Chairs of the local organising committee
