Winter school 2012

32 PhD students and postdocs from 14 countries attended the Metaphor Lab Winter School 2012 in ‘Metaphor identification and analysis’. The event was a great success!

Students attended one or more of these courses:

Tina Krennmayr: Linguistic metaphor identification: How to use the MIPVU procedure

Gerard Steen: From linguistic to conceptual metaphor in five steps

Alan Cienki: Metaphor in gesture with speech: Identification and interpretation

Two guest lectures were held:

– on metaphor research in the fields of organization and management
(Joep Cornelissen, VU Faculty of Economics and Business Administration).
– on cognitive psychology (Diane Pecher, Erasmus University Rotterdam).

The School was endorsed by the international Association for Researching and Applying Metaphor (RaAM).
