"Upon those who step into the same rivers, different and again different waters flow."

Over 2500 years have passed, but Heraclitos' wisdom remains salient. None would deny that there are dominant movements and perspectives; yet, every scholar must admit that the topography of the discipline is in continual flux. Each year generates a new approach and a new trend – a new branch from the old.

Metaphor in Public Discourse

Wednesday, March 18, 2009 - 9:36pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association

This session seeks to promote new knowledge about the nature and function of metaphor in public discourse. Interpretations of contemporary events tend to use metaphorical expressions to describe cultural and social changes in society, illuminating but also hiding concepts embedded in discourse. Academicians from various fields of studies will highlight ways in which conceptualizations govern our understanding of key issues and actions in current times. Participants are encouraged to explore metaphor as expressed through written, oral, visual, and gestural languages in public discourse.
