In addition, Rodrigo Andrés, Isabel Clúa, Joana Masó, Helena González Fernández, Katarzyna Paszkiewicz, Andrea Ruthven, researchers from the Centre Dona i Literatura will take part, as well as Gracia Trujillo (Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha), Rosa de Diego (Universidad del País Vasco), Jorge Luis Peralta (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) and Alberto Mira (Oxford Brookes University).
