16th RaAM Conference

June 28 – 30, 2023, Alcalá de Henares

About RaAM 16th

The Organising Committee of the 16th  RaAM Conference welcomes you to our website and is pleased to invite you to this new edition, which will take place next 28-30 June 2023, co-organized by Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and Universidad de Alcalá.

RaAM is committed to the study of metaphor, metonymy and other forms of figurative expression in all domains of life and with a particular focus on the application of metaphor research to real-life issues. On this basis, the theme for our conference is Metaphor in Public Discourse, insisting on the crucial role of metaphor as a strategy for the construction, spread and contestation of specific ideologies, influencing citizens’ attitudes and decisions about practical issues.

Prior to the conference, some pre-conference workshops will be offered. See the Programme for details.

For further details on the topic and procedures of submission, please see the Call for Papers, with instructions on submission and registration.

We would like to encourage you to visit our historic University of Alcalá and the lively city of Alcalá de Henares. For this, we are preparing some activities in our social programme. You will find some practical information about the venue, travelling and accommodation in this website.
