From 31 August through 3 September 2016, the Metaphor Lab Amsterdam will organise the Metaphor Festival. The Metaphor Festival is an annual conference on the use of figurative language and other modes of figurative expression. It used to be arranged by the Department of English at Stockholm University, but has moved to the University of Amsterdam as of this year.
The Festival is endorsed by RaAM.
Abstracts can be now submitted by Easychair. Deadline for submission is 31 March. Information about acceptances will be emailed by 15 April to all scholars submitting an abstract.
Information about registration, conference fees and accommodation will be announced later—please check the Metaphor Lab website for updates and further information. There is also a Facebook page: Metaphor Festival Amsterdam 2016.
