Meeting Description:

This conference is hosted by the Sociedad Española de Didáctica de la Lengua y la Literatura (SEDLL), a non-profit organization whose members are researchers and professionals from all educational levels with interests in the teaching and learning of literature, language and culture, as well as the verbal, non-verbal and ICT resources.

SEDLL has four fundamental objectives:

1. To establish professional relationships among experts in the field of language and literature teaching and learning from all educational levels and disciplines
2. To publish research, activities and proposals related to teaching and learning activities, especially those related to linguistic and literary education
3. To encourage sound innovation in the teaching and learning of language and literature
4. To promote initiatives which allow for R+D in the field

Every year SEDLL organizes an International Congress addressing a wide range of disciplinary themes, and an International Symposia, which focuses on specific topics, usually held in late November to early December alternatively. Since 1989, SEDLL has also published the journal Lenguaje y Textos.

This year's conference is hosted by the Universitat Politècnica de València and the Universitat de València thanks to the collaboration of their respective departments: Department of Applied Linguistics (DLA-UPV) and Department of Language and Literature Didactics (DLLD-UV). The aims of this conference are, first, to foster joint activities and projects; second, to allow members of the research groups to interact, and third, to provide the opportunity to introduce SEDLL to other groups working in language and literature didactics. Therefore, the Organizing Committee cordially invites you to come and discuss your ideas and issues related to teaching and learning of literature, languages and cultures.
