How many metaphors can you spot?
Thanks to everyone that attended our first seminar on Friday 23rd April. We had a lively discussion about how metaphors are used in the discourse of sustainability. We're now in the process of organising our next event - more details to come. In the meantime if you want to continue the discussion from the seminar please post your comments here.
The newly formed Cardiff Public Relations and Integrated Communications Research Network (CaPRICoRN) will be holding a Postgraduate Researchers Seminar on The Use of Metaphors in the Discourse of Sustainability on Friday 23rd April 2010, 1-3pm at the BRASS Centre, 55 Park Place, Cardiff. The guest speaker will be Prof. Bruno Frischherz from the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Switzerland. Lunch will be provided.
About the Speaker
Bruno Frischherz is Professor of Communication and Business Ethics at the Business School of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Switzerland. He is a Visiting Scholar at the Cardiff School of English, Communication and Philosophy (ENCAP) and at the Centre for Business Relationships, Accountability, Sustainability and Society (BRASS). His current research is looking at how different actors (including public sector, science, civil society, business and media organisations) engage in the public discourse on sustainability
About the Seminar
The aims of the seminar are to show the relevance of metaphors in the public discourse on sustainability; to analyse the source and target domains of sustainability metaphors; to analyse visualisations of the abstract concept of ‘sustainability’; and to analyse the function of these metaphors as part of instructional and persuasive representations. Participants will be invited to analyse and discuss samples of textual and pictorial metaphors during the seminar.
