Call for papers - conference Metaphor Festival Amsterdam 2019

The Metaphor Lab Amsterdam is delighted to announce that the next Metaphor Festival will take place in Amsterdam from 28 - 31 August 2019.

The Metaphor Festival is an annual conference on the use of figurative language and other modes of figurative expression, such as multimodal or non-verbal communication. It offers an opportunity to present and learn about research findings concerning the structures, functions, and effects of figurative language in different types of human communication. Contributions to the Festival can address tropes such as metaphor, metonymy, hyperbole and irony.

> Word limit: Abstracts should be 300 words maximum and should be written in English (please provide glosses or translations for examples in other languages). > Structure: Abstracts reporting on empirical data should have four sections: introduction, methods, findings, and conclusions. Abstracts providing a purely theoretical or philosophical contribution should have three sections: introduction, main argument, and conclusions. > Take-home message: All abstracts should end with a one-sentence take-home-message. > Double-blind review: Authors need to make sure that their identities cannot be retrieved from the abstract itself, and should include blind reference to their work that is not yet publicly available (i.e., papers in press, under review and. or in preparation).

Deadline for submission is 15 March. The online submission system will be open as of 1 February.
