CfP New RaAM-endorsed symposium in Groningen, The Netherlands

We are pleased to announce a new RaAM-endorsed event – this time with a Call for Papers for a symposium!

From 9-14 August 2020 the AILA-World Congress of Applied Linguistics will be held in Groningen, The Netherlands.

Call for Papers

In this RaAM endorsed symposium, the papers will examine how metaphors manifest and mediate power and privilege in political and professional rhetoric as well as how metaphor is used to persuade. Research by scholars on how metaphors expose and exploit power structures in healthcare, education, business, politics, psychology, etc. are welcome to submit to this symposium. The full symposium abstract is included at the end of this message for your reference.

The deadline for submission is September 16 and we will be including no more than 10 papers (standard multimodal presentation) and 10 posters (focused multimodal presentations). We must point out that there is no financial incentive available for any of our presenters including our featured speaker.
