The so-called "Cognitive Revolution" brought with it, among other features, Cognitive or Conceptual Metaphor (CM) (Reddy, Lakoff and Johnson), refining and expanding theories of comparison and property attribution. In the period 1970-1990 circa, CM gradually came to dominate the metaphor scene, consolidating its position in the twenty years that followed, also bolstered by relevance theory and Gricean pragmatics. Naturally, there were "offshoots" and complementary strands - developments such as blending theory − which enriched the scene. Unsurprisingly, inadequacies were also identified and "alternatives" or "integrations", such as perceptual simulation (Gibbs, Barsalou), framing (Schoen, Reddy) offered.

Time, Space, and Writing the Body

English Graduate Student Association of the University of South Florida

As humans, we locate ourselves in the time and space of our physical existence, but within the humanities, we get to explore and at times relocate ourselves. In doing so, we redefine not only our personal identity but the very essence of what it means to be human. This year's conference will explore the porous constructs of self and Other, questioning where the individual fits—or does not—into the fabric of existence. This concept could include the timely topics of race, class, gender, and sexuality; philosophical questions concerning what is human, non-human, and post-human; and larger global issues such as the impact of environmental and economic oppression on the body.
