We are pleased to announce the 12th conference of RaAM – the Association for Researching and Applying Metaphor which will be held at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University from 27 June to 30 June 2018. The conference will be hosted by the university’s Department of English.
The theme of RaAM12 is Metaphor across contexts and domains: from description to application. We aim to highlight the multi-contextual and inter-disciplinary nature of contemporary metaphor scholarship, and the various steps along the trajectory from description to application. We hope to provide a platform where researchers and practitioners can discuss descriptive, theoretical, conceptual, and/or applicative aspects of their work, across different forms, functions, contexts, and domains of metaphor use in the social world.
