Meeting Description:

Historically, numerous research studies have attempted to explore the three main components that characterize EnTRetextos Conferences: (a) discourse and discourse genres; (b) the study and application of specialized corpora; and (c) specialized translation. These three main research areas have undergone far-reaching changes in recent years, which have been particularly boosted by the introduction of the digital domain in the studies and professions related to specialized discourse. Therefore, this 3rd EnTRetextos Conference aims to bring together specialists in the three aforementioned areas to exchange and share their research on specialized discourse, but with a special emphasis on how the digital age has made an impact on both the quality of the research and the attributes of the specialized discourse under analysis.

We are grateful to the following keynote speakers who kindly accepted our invitation:
• Giovanni Parodi, Pontifical Catholic University of Valparaíso
• Carmen Sancho Guida, Technical University of Madrid
• Jan Chovanec, Masaryk University.
• Mª Ángeles Orts Llopis, University of Murcia
