Meeting Description:

The Stockholm 2011 Metaphor Festival (SMF)
Thursday 8 to Saturday 10 September

The Stockholm Metaphor Festival is an annual conference on the use of figurative language, 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 –literary as well as linguistic – in a creative, internationally oriented and friendly atmosphere. The importance of figurative language is now generally recognised, and the Festival offers an opportunity to present and learn about research findings concerning figures of speech in different types of discourse, and their cognitive, cultural, narrative, poetic, rhetorical, social or textual functions.

Keynotes: Ronald W. Langacker and David Punter

Call for Papers:

Workshop 'Topics in Metonymy' at The Stockholm 2011 Metaphor Festival

The workshop focuses on two main topics.

One of them is the discussion of the difficulties affecting a detailed description of metonymy and the development of a typology of metonymy. This topic is the object of the first section of the workshop, during which the organiser, Professor Antonio Barcelona, and two members of the research group he heads at the University of Córdoba will present and discuss some of the results of their ongoing research project on this topic.

The other topic is a very broad one ('Metonymy at, under and above the Lexicon') and it is open to contributions from any interested scholars; it has been chosen precisely because of its breadth with the purpose of bringing together metonymy researchers with a wide variety of interests and because it underscores the multilevel use of metonymy in language. Presentations on the operation of metonymy in any area are welcome, but those which are additionally relevant for any of the following issues will be given preference:

- Metonymy across languages
- Metonymic chaining (in lexical semantics and / or discourse)
- Metonymy in grammatical theory

Date: Saturday, September 10, 2011, 9:00 a.m. -12 p.m.

Place: University of Stockholm (check the conference's webpage

www.english.su.se/research/metaphorfestival for further venue details)

Abstract submission deadlines: March 31

Abstract submission is limited only to Section 2. Abstracts should be written in English, and they are expected to be about 300 to 400 words long. The abstract should have a title, but the author's name, academic affiliation, and email address should be indicated on a separate sheet. All abstracts should be emailed to l52hegoiuco.es (María Isabel Hernández Gomáriz).

Notification of acceptance: May 15
