Call for Papers

Following the first workshop on Metaphor Variation in Englishes around the World, held in Bremen in 2015, the second workshop is going to take place at the Department of English and American Studies, University of Potsdam, on 7-8 July 2016. By bringing together scholars with an interest in metaphor in World Englishes, the workshop provides researchers with the opportunity to present their studies, discuss their results, and learn about the latest findings in the field.

We are inviting submissions addressing

  • methodological approaches to the study of metaphor variation in World Englishes;
  • identification of metaphors in electronic corpora of World Englishes;
  • media-based identification of metaphorical variation in World Englishes;
  • metaphorical processingĀ  by speakers of World Englishes.

Beyond that, papers with other approaches that are also relevant to the overall workshop topic are welcome.

Paper guidelines
Papers will be presented in 30-minute slots. Please note that the talk should not exceed 20 minutes, since another 10 minutes will be reserved for discussion.
