The 2019 Conference of the International Association for Languages and Intercultural Communication (IALIC) will be held at the Universitat de València (Spain), 20-22 November, 2019, with the aim of providing a forum for research in the field. The conference theme, Translating Cultures, Cultures in Translation, emerges principally from the idea that it is people who co-construct their culture(s) through intercultural communication and everyday encounters. Cultures are therefore not static, but are always on the move; nor are cultures homogenous, rather they are diverse and multifaceted. In other words, cultures are always ‘in translation’ or moving from one location to another; similarly, cultural frameworks are always permeable and subject to change under the mutual contact that takes place between individuals.
