Congress liLETRAd 2018 Languages and literatures, nationalisms and identities


Last Updated: 19 Oct 2017

The world is divided into five populated continents: Europe, America, Africa, Asia, Oceania. And we think this is true. In order for these affirmations to take on weight, the processes of transformation that occurred were numerous. Nevertheless, please continue reading this brief account:

The man stopped living in his caverns more than five thousand years ago and since then he has fought in search of the longed for Peace. However, to achieve this it has crossed seas and oceans and has been exposed to numerous dangers. Pirates and privateers were always on the lookout. Stereotyped characters, archetypes and empires formed the current imaginary.

Countries defined people as monarchical or republican, as a rule without first asking them.

The cities built their forts, to defend themselves against the invasions, so that little by little they changed the course of history or maintained it. They even coveted other lands and then they abandoned theirs. Others were happy in backcountry areas, away from the problems of pollution.

When some men considered that we were not all equal, nor would we enjoy the same privileges, the wars began and the criminals took advantage of the citizens … Now that the Centennial of the end of World War I is fulfilled, it is a good time for dialogue and for to understand that to defend a position at all costs constitutes an inherent right to Nationality, but to strive to defend Nationalisms is not always optimal and the origin of conflicts, while Identity is a feeling that flows from the individual’s way of being and corresponds to the abstract concept of Homeland.

At our V International Congress liLETRAd, to be held on 4, 5 and 6 July 2018 at the Catholic University of Cuyo (San Luis, Argentina, C / Felipe Velázquez, No. 471, CP: 5700), we want to discover the adventure that brings us in America this new company of Literature, Language and Translation in several languages: Spanish, German, French, English, Portuguese, Italian, Arabic, Chinese and other languages. We anticipate that a Gala Dinner will be held on July 6 at the same host university.

This congress is organized by the INTERNATIONAL liLETRAd Association, promoted by the Research Group HUM-978 of the University of Seville and by the Vice-Rectorate of the Catholic University of Cuyo. We will set out previously from many remote places to participate in a meeting-point in Buenos Aires (1st and 2nd of July 2018, Plaza de los Españoles, at 10:00 AM). We will walk through its elegant streets in the district of Puerto Madero, we will dance Tango in the quarter of Boca and we will taste the best Creole flavors.
