This seminar explores the approach known as Critical Metaphor Analysis of texts by examining metaphors in a corpus of English language speeches given by President Volodymyr Zelensky. After a brief discussion of his background as a politician I will demonstrate the procedure of Critical Metaphor Analysis. As a group we will analyse various metaphors taken from Zelensky's speeches so as to evaluate both the persuasiveness of his rhetoric and the value of Critical Metaphor Analysis.

The seminar does not require prior knowledge of Critical Metaphor Analysis and will be beneficial for those interested in the linguistic analysis of political texts.
