Dear colleagues, dear members of liLETRAD INTERNACIONAL:
It is a great pleasure to greet and WELCOME you all to our new edition of liLETRAd 2017, which will be held on the 5, 6 and 7th of July!
On this occasion we are making a delightful proposal, which hopefully will open a way to academic exchange and cultural communication among countries.
Given the pleasant experience in our previous editions, we are about to extend your participation. Among our speakers we will find our beloved Honor Partners: Mrs. Inger Enkvist, Mr. Darío Villanueva, Mr. Pedro R. García Barreno and Mr. Juan de Castro.
If we were to emphasize an important aspect of their personality, it would be their accessibility, that magic word that differentiates them but makes us closer as well. They are Academics, and we can type it in capital letters, but they evidently learn from observation and dialogue. We therefore invite you to do the same in several languages: German, English, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Arabic, Chinese and Spanish.
Based on our extensive thematic fields, which include LITERATURE, LANGUAGE and TRANSLATION, our line of argument, “BUILDING BRIDGES BETWEEN EAST AND WEST”, focuses on a brand new and social current theme: the existence or construction of walls, Barriers, Brexit and further delimitations, which, rather than uniting us, could break with global love as well as with ethical principles and constitutional rights. From a universal and integral perspective, we would like to contribute to our basic object of study, the Humanities, and to investigate both the pros and cons of research and production, teaching and learning. Starting from our hidden but inevitable initiative we would like to join our voice to moderate all those situations or conflicts that in one way or another affect us. Sometimes, these blissful ideas invade our precious global village without reason…
liLETRAd International Conference 2017 is mainly addressed to university professors and other professionals, Secondary Education or Special Regimes and / or Primary Education, although our Cátedra liLETRAd Literature competition could accept relevant works written by other participants for their presentation during the days 5, 6 and 7th of July, upon proposals from their authors. Check our policies here: rules-of-the-literary-contest-2017
We will be looking forward to seeing you in the incomparable setting of the University of Seville, where your scientific work will be presented rigorously, and where through its thematic sections we will establish a framework that requires of your worthy knowledge.
During this year changes are expected to take place in our old Europe, measures will be taken in our beloved America and we will still keep on dreaming that one day there will be a world in peace. The actions we undertake together are those that will last through time. In our classrooms Luís Cernuda, Manuel Ariza, Aula Magna and Paraninfo (Rectorate of the University of Seville) we will discuss the implications and consequences of these changes. We can all bring fresh ideas to the place!
Then the entertainment time will come. We are fully confident that you will like the Alfonso XIII Hotel, next to the university, in which we will have some snacks to promote this spirit.
Speakers can register for the conference from now until the 30th of April 2017, whereas the attendees can do it until the 30th of June 2017 by sending their application form to firstname.lastname@example.org.

We wish the greatest ethical fortune upon all of you and an enterprising event that brings us closer in a transcultural atmosphere.
