The Department of European Literature at the University of the Republic (Uruguay) announces its 11th International Montevideana Conference, to be held virtually.
It is tempting to think of Boccaccio's most important work in relation to our current times, given that in recent months the Decameron has become a virtual meeting place through rewrites, seminars, and group readings dedicated to the text. The superposition of his pandemic with ours has become, in more than one sense, a paradoxical kind of locus amoenus, adding a new layer to the varied investigations and artistic appropriations that this Italian text has motivated in its 700 years of existence.

The cognitivist turn sparked a renewed interest in narrative analysis that extends beyond the study of literature. It has expanded across media such as film, graphic novels, video games, and music. This conference focuses on the study of narrative and narrativity in music. While some critics are convinced of music’s capacity for story-building, others consider the use of narrative theory derived from literary studies for the analysis of music unsuitable. This conference takes music’s narrative potential as its point of departure but recognizes that musical narrativity is scalar.

“Art can be a powerful means of challenging the stereotypes of mutually antagonizing nations”—Aphrodite Desiree Navab
This virtual (online) panel seeks papers that explore the imaginary cities built by Latin American literature from the 19th century to the present. Since this year's conference theme is “City of God, City of Destruction,” we are interested in proposals that study both the utopian and dystopian cities that Latin American writers have imagined to place there the collective fears and desires of their societies, as well as all those other fictional cities –neither paradisiacal nor infernal– that have served as microcosms to represent the tensions and conflicts of human comedy.

This proposed special session roundtable invites reflections on the tensions and limits of teaching and studying literature at religious as well as secular universities and colleges. How do different institutional commitments and governing documents as well as campus cultures and constituencies implicitly and/or explicitly limit what can be taught and published at each kind of institution? What are these limits and how have scholars navigated, challenged, and/or adapted to them? What kind of institutional discursive spaces might be created between and beyond the secular/religious divide?

“Rhetoric is a coproductive function of circulation in excess of human intention, which collapses rhetoric and persuasion into the rhetorical, a process of world making that extends relationality into future publics.”

Out of Bounds: An Exploration of Boundaries in Crisis Online Conference: 14 & 15 July 2021 Trinity Centre for Literary & Cultural Translation
From the exact lines on an architect’s blueprints to the demarcations on maps that shape the world today, boundaries have consequences. In concrete form they have separated societies, but they need not be material in order to exert power. The onset of crisis often sees the imposition of boundaries that are nebulous and ill-defined but surely no less potent than the menacing walls of segregation.
