Following World War II a diverse and intense surrealist film culture took shape. Surrealist filmmakers made experimental short films, documentaries, and feature films, while surrealist writers were a steady presence in French film criticism. With this our volume Surrealism and Film After 1945, we present the first anthology on this rich but understudied topic. The volume will feature contributions on filmmakers connected with surrealism, the surrealist reception and exhibition of film, and the surrealist contributions to animation, documentary, and feminist film.

Conference English Literature in the World: From Manuscript to Digital (May 7-10, Lisbon, Portugal)

English Literature has been able to reinvent itself along new pathways, from the age of the manuscript to the digital era. In the last decades, the digital technology has changed the paradigms involving both the reading strategies and the analysis of literary texts: among others, the relation between writer and reader; the publication in digital platforms; “distant reading”; the exploration of the image; the abundance of information; the access to the original texts. This enormous change has originated an interdisciplinary reevaluation of many of the previous paths, as well as the launching of new focuses of reflection.
