In addition to previous conferences such as those held at University of Jaén (“Seminarios de Lexicografía Hispánica”, 1991-2003) and other more recent ones at Complutense University (“Jornada de Lexicografía en el contexto del aprendizaje de lenguas”, 2021), UNAM (Mexico) (“Jornada de Lexicografía Didáctica”, 2021) and Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz / Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú (“Jornada de Lexicografía Bilingüe con Lenguas Indígenas”, 2022), the first meeting on Recent Spanish Bilingual Lexicography will be held at University of Granada.

Taking into account the points described in Pablo-Núñez 2021 (, about marginalised languages in the historiography of Spanish lexicography, this conference aims to promote studies on recent bilingual lexicography of Spanish with other non-majority languages, preferably panoramic studies rather than specific descriptions of particular works.

The conference will focus especially on:

  • Overall studies on the recent lexicography of Spanish and other non-majority languages (preferably works published from the 1980s to the present day).
  • Panoramic studies (with the possibility of including earlier periods) on bilingual lexicography of Spanish with other Eastern European, Central European, Baltic or Scandinavian language(s).
  • Panoramic studies (including previous periods if necessary) of Spanish bilingual lexicography with other non-Western languages (Asian, African or Oceanic languages).

These will be the priority lines. However, studies analysing bilingual or multilingual lexicographical repertoires with Spanish that have been little studied, especially manuscripts, as well as other aspects on recent bilingual lexicography of Spanish with minority languages not necessarily historiographical, could be proposed.

As there are other specific conferences for the study of Missionary Linguistics, bilingual lexicographies of Spanish with Amerindian languages are excluded here, excepted panoramic studies on recent bilingual lexicography (1980s onwards) which could be proposed.

The number of participants is limited to a maximum of 25, so proposals received will be evaluated and those most relevant to the lines proposed will be selected. The selection of the papers will be carried out by a process of blind peer review by the Scientific Committee of the Conference.

The conference will be held at the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters of the University of Granada on 1 and 2 June 2023. It is the organisation’s will that there will be more conferences on bilingual Spanish Lexicography in future years in order to give continuity to this one.

Participation as a speaker is free of charge.
Attendance at the conference is free of charge, subject to prior registration via email and the SciencesConf portal (more details about this in a next future).

Papers will be published, after a selection and peer review process, as a monograph in a journal in the first two quartiles (Q1 or Q2) or as a monograph in a well-positioned publishing house (collections with FECYT quality criteria, Spanish index SPI – Scholarly Publishers Indicators).
