MetNet Scandinavia

MetNet Scandinavia is a network for metaphor research in, or related to Scandinavia. Our main goal is to promote research on metaphor and other types of figuration (e.g. metonymy, hyperbole, irony, etc.) in the Scandinavian context (broadly defined: e.g., about Scandinavian issues, conducted by researchers linked to Scandinavia, etc.).


MetNet Scandinavia was founded on September 24-25, 2018, with a two-day intensive workshop at Umeå University, Sweden. It is chaired by Linda Greve, Aarhus University and Marlene Johansson Falck, Umeå University.
