n order to participate actively in a globalized knowledge society, higher education institutions must develop actions that contemplate the design and implementation of cooperation strategies and inter-institutional research activities. These actions include, among others, different teaching updating tasks and continuous training activities for students, which should result in effective results that are relevant to the requirements of social groups in the international sociocultural and educational context. From the multidisciplinary branch of the language sciences, we seek to comply with such actions by contributing to the research on the discourse of (dis) politeness and its regional variation in Spanish-speaking countries. For this reason, the EDICE Program (Studies on the Discourse of Courtesy in Spanish) of the University of Stockholm, headed by Diana Bravo and the Consolidated Academic Body UANL-245 Languages, speeches. Semiotics Studies of culture in the region of the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters of the Autonomous University of Nuevo Leon, Mexico, join forces to bring together an international group of researchers that generate contributions to the knowledge of language and culture. The purpose is to keep a space open for specialists to share their experiences, knowledge and concerns about the problems that language studies pose to the research task. We thank the Director of this Unit, Dr. María Luisa Martínez Sánchez, for supporting these efforts.
