The first ever WALTIC congress will be held in Stockholm 29 June-2 July 2008. Our aim is to create a forum of exchange of experience amongst writers, literary translators and researchers engaged in and committed to the strengthening of democracy and human rights. Our ambition is to achieve new insights into reading and literature as tools for analysis of contemporary society, social development and change.

The main themes for WALTIC 2008 are world literacy, intercultural dialogue and digitalization. The congress will focus on the narratives as mediators of knowledge and bearers of culture and collective memory, with a view to developing guidelines for reinforcing the role of literature in global society.
