The theme of the conference is ‘Metaphor, Metonymy and Emotions’. The conference aims to advance the study of metaphor and other related language and thought phenomena, including metonymy, and their relation to emotions, seen as one of the core elements of humanity, which play an inherent role in shaping real world issues. The conference encourages multidisciplinary and international research and collaboration by fostering an open approach with regard to theoretical frameworks, research methods and research contexts.
