Meeting Description:

The conference will be organised around two large thematic areas of linguistics and literature, pivoting around the concept of intersection.

On the one hand, this notion will be widely applied to linguistic studies, covering the following thematic lines:

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

On the other hand, this idea of intersection will be approached in relation to the following thematic lines within literary studies:

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

In addition, the Conference will be honoured with three plenary presentations by renowned experts such as Barbara De Cock (Université Catholique de Louvain), Lucía Loureiro Porto (Universitat de les Illes Balears) and Hernán Sánchez Martínez de Pinillos (University of Maryland).
