Metaphor Lab Winter School 2018: a report
From Sunday evening the 21st of January until Friday evening 26th, master students, PhDs and post doc researchers attended our ‘advanced level’ Winter School, this year themed as “Deliberate Metaphor Theory: a theoretical and empirical merit”. Gerard Steen held plenary talks in the morning, after which the students followed a course of their choosing on visual metaphor, metaphor in argumentation, or the identification of deliberate metaphor in discourse, taught by Jean Wagemans, Susan Nacey, Tina Krennmayr, Gudrun Reijnierse and Marianna Bolognesi. Participants did not only learn more about metaphor theory but also got to know each other better during our social activities. We would like to thank everyone who took part in the Winter School and in particular our sponsors!
