III International Conference

“FEmale Creations in Literary and Intercultural Education”


July 14th-16th, 2022

Facultat de Magisteri – Universitat de València (Spain)

The III International Congress “Female Creations in Literary and Intercultural Education” (known by its acronym in Spanish, CICELI) carries on the project that the XXIX AEGS-CICELI initiated in Valencia in July 2019, bringing more than three hundred researchers together from all over the world. We persist in the challenge of studying and giving visibility to the creativity of women in formal, non-formal and informal education that brought us together in the summer of 2020, in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic (II CICELI). Therefore, in this III CICELI, we consolidate the study of poets, playwrights and narrators whose work is included or can be included in the curricula of schools, high schools and universities, both in the literature subjects as in others where reading is presented transversally.

Proposals addressing female filmmakers and artists are also accepted, as well as research on fictional characters through a gender studies approach, all of which should be relevant to either compulsory schooling, higher education or educational experiences outside of regulated models.

Within these themes, there is room for comparative studies or research measuring the presence of female authors and artists in literary or intercultural education in any territory, not forgetting the pedagogical impact of didactic materials, textbooks or other creative publications, such as picture books or animation productions, aimed at a growing, heterogeneous audience immersed in a process of constant learning. The meeting is aligned with the principles of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (UN), specifically with the Sustainable Development Goals belonging to the ‘people’ axis (SDGs 1-5), objective 4 (ensuring the access to an inclusive, equitable, and high-quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all), and objective 5 (reaching gender equality), making “leave no one behind” our motto.

Finally, we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the foray of Harry Potter in the world of children and teenage fantasy fiction with the inclusion of a topic devoted to this character and the author, J. K. Rowling.
