Meeting Description:

This series of conferences that started back in 2004 with the aim of fostering a scientific meeting for the exchange of current research related to any of the areas that make up the Department, namely Spanish, English and French Language and Literature, as well as Didactics of Spanish Language and Literature. The conference will be arranged in thematic sessions and will consist of 20-minute paper presentations followed by a 10-minute discussion.

Call for Papers:

The conference will be organised around two large thematic areas of linguistics and literature:
The corpus as a tool for linguistic exploitation. Due to the huge impulse that corpus creation and data exploitation techniques are receiving in linguistics, we are looking for papers dealing with the possibilities and limitations of these tools and their research outcomes and covering one or more of the following thematic lines:

- Diachronic and synchronic linguistic studies (phonetics, phonology; morphosyntax; semantics; lexis; discourse)
- Linguistic variation and change
- Sociolinguistics
- Dialectology
- Pragmatics and discourse
- Metaphor studies
- Corpus linguistics
- Applied linguistics
- Acquisition and teaching of first, second and foreign languages
- Bilingualism and multilingualism
- Teaching of literature

The rewriting of literary classics and their different reinterpretations throughout history. This thematic line can be explored in relation to the following topics:

- Literary studies of periods (from the Middle Ages to contemporary times)
- Translation studies
- Reception studies
- Comparative literature
- Teaching of literature
- Children’s literature and literature for young adults

Abstracts should be submitted by 15 February, 2016. The text should include:

- Title
- Name of the author(s)
- Affiliation
- Contact details
- Thematic line/s to which the submission belongs
- Abstract (Word format; font Times New Roman 12 pts.; single space; 500-word extension, including references).
