Stand for election

This spring, the Ordinary Members and Postgraduate Liaison positions on the RaAM Executive Committee (EC) will be up for election. Find out here what Ordinary Member do, and here what being the Postgraduate Liaison entails.

Why should you stand for election?

It is important that RaAM is run by its members. We therefore need people to be willing to give their time and energy to making sure RaAM continues to develop as an international support for research and training on metaphor, metonymy, and other forms of figurative expression. Being a board member gives you the opportunity to be more involved in the RaAM community and to expand your professional network. So, if you are interested in helping, please stand.

How do I stand?

Fill out the candidacy form below if you would like to stand for one of the available posts. The application deadline is April 30th, 2020, 11:59PM (CET).
