The event, which was in person, welcomed around thirty attendees who were able to listen to Dr. Mitjans, as well as the other speakers: Prof. M. Kazmierczak and Prof. M. Rodríguez Velasco.

In this work, the analysis of two literary corpus (journalistic; fantastic) that deal with the dramatization of Renior (plastic artist) as a literary “metacharacter” allows us to link this notion to the phenomenology of creation.
