On June 4th and 5th, 2009, the RaAM Workshop “Metaphor, metonymy & multimodality” was held at the University of Amsterdam.
The focus of this workshop was on:

- the pictorial, sonic, and/or musical mode, combined with verbal information, in multimodal metaphors and metonymies surfacing in discourses of various types and genres (advertising, film, animation, comics).
