Challenges in the Learning of Literature and Language in the Digital Age
Universitat Politècnica de València – Universitat de València
19-21 November 2014

The Departments of Language and Literature Education (Facultat de Magisteri de la UV) and of Applied Linguistics (UPV) invite all those who are interested to participate in the 15th International Conference of the Spanish Association of Language and Literature Education, to be held in the Universitat de València and in the Universitat Politècnica de València from the 19th to the 21st of November 2014.

This Conference is hosted by the Spanish Association of Language and Literature Education (SEDLL), which is a non-profit organization for researchers of all educational levels and professionals who are concerned about the teaching and learning of languages, literatures and their audiovisual, non-verbal, verbal and expressive resources.

Within the theme “Challenges in the learning of literature and language in the digital age”, the objectives of this year’s conference are, on the one hand, to promote collaborative activities and projects, the exchange of ideas among different research groups and the possibility of learning more about SEDLL and the distinct groups working in the field of language and literature teaching in Valencia.

On the other hand, we believe that the conference will be an excellent opportunity to gather together individuals to discuss aspects related with teaching and to promote the interest and investigation in the topics addressed by the Association and the Conference.

The Conference will consist in plenary lectures, given by well-known experts in the field, workshops and round table discussions, in addition to panels for each of the topics included in the theme.



The conference main themes are as follows:

  1. Culture and Society in Teaching Language and Literature
