    Romance Languages in Medieval Latin Documentation

    Following recent discussions on the presence of Romance elements in medieval Latin documents, we propose this meeting, which aims at offering a new opportunity to reflect on all forms of manifestation of Romance languages in the mentioned texts, as well as to present the latest scientific advances made in their study in the wider European context. Thus, issues related to how, both morphologically and syntactically, the diplomas show the transition from Latin to Romance languages, the mechanisms for Latinizing Romance elements, or the presence of borrowings from other languages that were assumed by Romance languages, may be subject to analysis. Similarly, contributions will be welcome regarding the role that medieval Latin lexicography plays in relation to Romance language and how dictionaries and lexical databases contribute to their study.

    Women on stage: From the backstage to the to limelight

    Women in theatre until the 19th century

    Since its origin, the History of Theatre has been built by male names. However, it is unthinkable that women have not also had an important role in this construction. Besides existing as characters, their contributions as performers, playwrights, composers, entrepreneurs, patrons, scenographers or costume designers, among a broad range of other functions, were fundamental to the development of the theatrical practice. This conference aims to recover the place of women in theatre since its origin until the 19th century, covering a wide variety of topics, which have women at their centre, either as the focus of a show or as marginal, as star or tertiary figure, as part of the audience or as producer of the cultural object. The conference aims to provide a comprehensive and transdisciplinary debate in order to rediscover the place of women in theatre in a global and historical approach.

    La « Révolution des Œillets », révolution portugaise et mondiale

    Dossier spécial de la revue Lusotopie sur le Cinquantenaire du 25 avril 1974

    Le 24 avril 1974 au soir, les désormais célèbres « capitaines d’avril » commencèrent leur coup d’État au nom d’un programme simple, celui des « trois D » : décoloniser, démocratiser, développer. Il s’agissait surtout de mettre fin à près de quatorze ans de guerre coloniale, une guerre qui ne pouvait pas être gagnée militairement, qui isolait le Portugal sur la scène internationale, brûlait près la moitié du budget de l’État et poussait la jeunesse à prendre le chemin de l’exil pour éviter de partir au combat. Cinquante ans après le 25 avril 1974, Lusotopie publie un dossier spécial pour étudier les aspects de cette révolution qui pourraient avoir été sous-étudiés.

    Mapping the Other

    In Western space, mapping the Other is not a prescriptive notion to assign ossified identities. Rather, it is about questioning the link between these intersectional identities of otherness and the specificities of the various Western spaces. In other words, it invites a reconsideration of how the Others autonomously define themselves in the dominant and marginal spaces of the “normative order” of hegemonic societies, and how they integrate them to make them theirs—therefore challenging the systems of oppression implemented.

    Écritures de la fluidité dans la littérature latino-américaine contemporaine

    Nous aborderons dans ce numéro de Crisol le concept de fluidité dans les littératures latino-américaines récentes écrites en espagnol, en portugais et en langues autochtones. Les termes renvoyant à la fluidité seront entendus dans leur matérialité, renvoyant aux études éco-critiques mais aussi aussi au corps humain. On s’interrogera également sur les implications stylistiques d’une telle notion, pour interroger ce qu’est (ou n'est pas) une écriture fluide, une lecture fluide. Enfin, la notion de fluidité sera interrogée dans ses liens avec la post-modernité, en particulier en ce qui concerne l’approche du genre.

    Revolution and Cinema: Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Carnation Revolution

    The beginning of the 21st century has been marked by the deepening of social inequalities, the anachronism of authoritarian regimes and the political exhaustion of democratic systems. It should invite us to analyze the traces, myths, outbursts, failures, and eventual successes of past revolutions so we can attain a better apprehension of the links between cinema, art, and politics. This special section aims to contribute to the constitution of a “cine-geography” (Gray and Eshun 2011, 1) of the forms of “making” cinema and revolution. The aim is to update historical and aesthetic analyses that address the encounter between cinema and revolution.

    Afro-Diasporic Imaginaries in 20th and 21st–Century Latin American and Caribbean Literature and Visual Arts

    In this volume, we would like to analyze in depth the paths taken by the 20th and 21st century Latin American and Caribbean letters in relation to the experience of the black diaspora in dialogue with the visual arts, as well as in relation to the main themes, forms and techniques used by artist, playwrights, poets, storytellers and writers. In a context of increasing violence and intolerance towards minorities in Latin America, we will welcome analyses that focus on the relationship between literature and the resistance of the cultures created by the black diaspora.

    Missionary strategies and practices, slavery and forced labour (early 19th-mid 20th century)

    Another discussion on the institutional position of the churches in relation to slavery will be resolutely avoided. What will be analysed is the concrete confrontation —or cohabitation— with slavery. What did missionaries know about their slave environment? How did they learn about it? How did they take a stand? How did they act–or not? Same questions as far as indentured labour and the colonial forms of forced labour were concerned. Were there confrontations, mediations and misunderstandings?

    Fictions of terror in the Southern Cone and Brazil: recent representations

    Amerika n°26

    This issue of Amerika will explore Southern Cone’s and Brazil’s horrific and terrific recent literature. In Latin America, violence is ubiquitous producing fear and anguish, and these emotions can be contagious. Fear and anguish are intrinsically related to terror, and they can take place both at a collective level and at an individual level. Many authors use terror to deal with subjects such as politics, family, violence, poverty, public security, social radicalization, the body and the feminine condition.

    Le panhispanisme : tensions, écarts, rencontres

    Société des hispanistes français

    Le mot panhispanisme a toujours fait référence, surtout, à la langue en ce qu’elle constitue le dénominateur commun d’un ensemble de territoires dans lesquels on utilise l’espagnol de façon plus ou moins prépondérante. Le but du prochain colloque international de la Société des hispanistes français (SHF) est de s’interroger, de débattre et d’échanger, depuis des approches et des perspectives variées, sur la notion et la réalité du panhispanisme. L’hispanisme, le lusitanisme, le galéguisme, le catalanisme et l’américanisme sont concernés par cette thématique qui se déclinera en plusieurs disciplines : lexicographie, dialectologie, traductologie, didactique de la langue, analyse du discours, glottopolitique, sociolinguistique, civilisation, études culturelles, études postcoloniales, études cinématographiques et histoire en général.

    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.

    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.
