In this conference, we invite potential participants to look at how pandemics have shaped our language through metaphors, what metaphors people have used during pandemics, how they address our fears, worries and anxieties, what new mentalities, perspectives and attitudes they produce during the times of pandemic and how they are reflected in language, literature and culture, and how they contribute to the politics of the text.
