Congreso Internacional de Literatura, Lengua y Traducción “liLETRAd”, 7 and 8 July 2015

Congreso Internacional de Literatura, Lengua y Traducción “liLETRAd” is the result of a collaborative project involving researchers from various countries in Europe and the Americas. Its peculiar binding spectrum is to be of use in joining together different cultures and corresponding languages, along with intercultural studies under a common motto: “A journey there and back”. Thus, literature takes on particular importance for its evocative and fantastic character; as does language through establishing contact with people and situations which involve an exchange (at times unexpected); and it is so often translation that helps us in opening up a path through the world. We are, then, travellers there and back, criss-crossing wayfarers and apprentices in the opportunity of realising a creative metaphor. Writers in exile or in the imagination, linguists in search of the precise word or analysts of the spoken form, translators ready for of the precise word or analysts of the spoken form, translators ready for action in what may be an already betrayed venture, and others. They are welcome at liLETRAd! Don’t expect the usual conference. We have something special in mind in order to satisfy this longing to know how to exchange and connect with the information world, since that would be a solid foundation. For that purpose, communications experts will give us the essentials in plenary meetings Can you speak Spanish? Can you speak German or English? Can you hold your own in Portuguese? Or is your language French? This is your place. liLETRAd will take place in the Facultad de Filología of Universidad de Sevilla (Rectorado) on 7 and 8 July 2015 when our journey will take us through expositions of 20 minutes’ length, plenary sessions and round-table discussions for each of the panels, divided between Aula Magna, Aula Luís Cernuda and Aula Manuel Ariza. Naturally, we will recover our strength with our buffet breakfast and joint interactive lunch, and so we trust that the desire to repeat this journey will grow, a journey with co-organisers from Universidad Federal Fluminense, Universidad del Estado de Río de Janeiro and Pontificia Universidad Católica de Río de Janeiro (Brazil). The contributions which pass peer review will be published in a monograph and the corresponding certificate issued.

There are, therefore, three sections divided into the following panels, which you can join as an attendee or as a speaker, and from which you can choose an exquisite selection before 31 March 2015 by emailing The deadline for the delivery of papers for publication is 20 July 2015.
