New RaAM-endorsed event in Toulon, France

On 1-2 June 2017, the Research Laboratory Babel (Laboratoire BABEL), in collaboration with the University of Montreal, Canada, will host an international conference on Metaphor and Translation.

This workshop is endorsed by RaAM.

The conference invites proposals for papers which investigate how a metaphor may be transferred from one language to another or from one semiotic system to another (for example, in literature or in the cinema).

The two working languages will be French and English and any combination of European languages in translation will be welcome.
