Dates: 01-03 March 2012
Venue: Faculdade de Letras da Universidade do Porto | Portugal
The purpose of this conference is to commemorate the centenary of important events in the history of Modernism in several cultural domains, such as the first issues of the journals Poetry and Georgian Poetry, the publication of the first imagist poems and the first futurist exhibition outside Italy, in Paris. Also to be noted the revelation of the Russian cubo-futurist manifesto «A Slap in the Face of Public Taste» and of the «Technical Manifesto of Futurist Literature», the Der Blaue Reiter exhibitions and the publication of Der Blaue Reiter Almanach, Oswald de Andrade’s decisive trip to Europe and, obviously, the beginning of Fernando Pessoa’s acquaintance with Mário de Sá-Carneiro, as well as other well-known publishing and artistic events of decisive impact. Our chief aim is to organize a critical conference with a broad horizon, with an international and inter-artistic focus, which will bring together the work of scholars from several disciplines in a productive manner.
Papers may be presented in Portuguese, English, French and Spanish.
