Call For Papers

The 15th Researching and Applying Metaphor Conference (RaAM15) will be hosted by the University of Bialystok (Poland). It is scheduled to take place 21-24 September 2022 in a hybrid form. The online part is going to be hosted via Zoom, and the in-person event is going to be located at the Faculty of Education of the University of Bialystok. The Local Organizing Committee closely monitors the COVID-19 pandemic and will make changes to the program accordingly.

The confirmed Keynote Speakers for RaAM15 are:
• Kathleen Ahrens The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (Hong Kong)
• Christian Burgers University of Amsterdam (the Netherlands)
• Veronika Koller Lancaster University (the United Kingdom)
• Susan Lee Nacey Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences (Norway)

Metaphor scholarship, conscious of the power yielded by figurative language, has great potential to raise the same awareness among other language users: we want to turn your eyes to the ways metaphor can become a tool as well as a byproduct of pressing social changes happening around the world. With this theme we hope to advance the discussion about the implications of metaphor studies and their implementation in real world.

We welcome papers that address all aspects of metaphor (and related) research from any perspective, including but not restricted to the following:
Metaphor in cross-cultural contexts (translation, metaphor variation, etc.), metaphor in politics (COVID-19 pandemic, environmental changes, social changes etc.), metaphor in education, metaphor in discourse (medical, legal, media, etc.)

You can choose any of the following formats: 1) talk 2) poster presentation 3) lighting round/work in progress

Abstracts for talks and poster presentations should be submitted through EasyChair. If you have not already done so, you will be prompted to set up an EasyChair account. Our submission link:
