    João Ubaldo Ribeiro, a ficção e a história

    III Congresso Internacional de Literatura Brasileira

    João Ubaldo Ribeiro nasceu na Bahia, em 23 de janeiro de 1941. Depois de viver em Portugal, Alemanha e Estados Unidos, na década de 1990 se mudou para o Rio de Janeiro. Tudo isso permitiu que o escritor ampliasse o horizonte do seu olhar. Comprometida política e socialmente com os desfavorecidos, a literatura de João Ubaldo traça a história do Brasil e acrisola as distintas culturas que configuraram a idiossincrasia desse grande país, a portuguesa e a africana, passando por numerosas manifestações nativas. Por isso, a sua obra possui uma pluralidade complexa de sotaques e uma notável variedade de tipos, unida a um profundo olhar histórico, e inegável compromisso com a ficção, da qual se serve na crítica, na ironia e no sentido de humor. Amante e defensor da língua portuguesa, da qual se considerava um servidor, João Ubaldo Ribeiro fez o idioma brilhar em seus trabalhos, que lhe proporcionaram grandes prêmios e um amplo número de leitores. O Colibra convida a todos os especialistas e leitores da obra de João Ubaldo Ribeiro, assim como da Literatura brasileira em geral, a participarem desta nova edição (como nas edições anteriores, também serão admitidos trabalhos que versem sobre literatura brasileira em general).

    Cordel Literature: new perspectives, new approaches

    Jangada Journal #20

    Due to its thematic, poetic, and expressive diversity, the cordel witnessed, narrated, and recorded several national history moments. Even though only men mastered the art of composing and singing in verse initially, little by little, women also took the stage. Nowadays, poets adjust national and international interest themes to their meter, rhyme, and clause. They denounce the system’s falsities and contradictions; they question decisions and mock hypocrisy without, however, losing that aura of playfulness and wonder that has consecrated the cordel among us. Originally handwritten and later in printed versions, cordel has maintained a strong connection with the voice and culture of fairs and squares, the fey and laughter of rogue heroes, and the feeling of indignation of the less favored and the exaltation of legendary braves since the end of the 19th century. More recent researchers drew attention to the relationship between cordel and its singers’ orality and body performance while singing poetry and African griots. In this thematic issue, we propose to host papers concerning the most varied studies on cordel literature and its cultural practices.

    The Materiality of Modernisms

    Within the framework of intertwining multiple approaches to the material and medial dimensions through which modernisms have been – and are being – studied, the conference will also offer an opportunity to revisit through this angle three events whose 100th  anniversary takes place in 2022. The publication of Joyce’s Ulysses, the organization of The Week of  Modern Art in São Paulo and the premiére of the Triadisches Ballett by Oskar Schlemmer, can be in fact set as clear examples of a broader and heterogeneous «discourse of the legitimation of change» (Osborne 2013), that only much later became known as “Modernism”. Round tables with guests and experts will be dedicated to these three topics as part of the conference program.

    Didactique(s), plurilinguisme(s), mondialisation(s)

    La didactique des langues est un domaine pluriel, où se côtoient des recherches diversement situées, qui interrogent des situations variées, des thématiques distinctes, voisines ou complémentaires, selon des approches qui privilégient différentes orientations et démarches liées à l’appropriation d’une ou de plusieurs langues par des apprenants et/ou aux rôles joués par différents acteurs dans l’appropriation langagière. Cette année, les organisateurs ont choisi d’interroger plus spécifiquement la notion de mondialisation comme angle d’analyse des situations didactiques.

    The Fantastic from screen to books, from books to screen: adaptations, reworkings, translations, mentions

    Revue « Caderno de Letras », #43 (2022)

    Since its origins, Cinema has made evident the existence of an open dialogue with other forms of art, either by having incorporated them into its own language – given its hybrid particularity, being simultaneously narrative, performative, visual and voiced –, or by having used existing productions as inspiration and having created, from them, new forms of art. Literature has proven to be a fertile ground for inspiration. Not by chance, great works that mark the beginning of the cinematographic trajectory were adaptations of novelistic or theatrical literary works. We propose for the issue 43 of Journal Caderno de Letras a dossier on all the potentialities of such dialogue involving Fantastic literary and audiovisual productions, whether based on adaptations (in both directions) or on the direct or indirect presence of Literature in audiovisual media or of audiovisual productions in literary texts.

    Imago, Actus et Verbum. Challenges and Questions in Medieval Studies

    A crossdisciplinary dialogue between philology, philosophy, history, art and literature

    On the outset of the 21st century, cross-disciplinary studies on the Middle Ages seem to be in need of a careful reconsideration of their nature, scope and aims. This is specially so after the series of "turns" undergone by historiography in the last four decades. Despite their differences, philosophy, history, philology , literary studies and art are also bound through their work on texts; and all are currently faced with both methodological and substantive issues raised by important shifts in contemporary society. This congress is devoted to a global assessment of the current state of affairs in medieval studies, but also the upcoming challenges.
