MATLIT Talks 2021

What are the Materialities of Literature? This was the research question that started the Doctoral Programme in Materialities of Literature in 2010-2011. The MATLIT Talk series intends to showcase research carried out within our Programme. Authors of recently completed PhD theses in Materialities of Literature are invited to present their original contributions to knowledge. Through this series of events, we want to disseminate both our expanded notion of literature, and the construction of theoretical objects and methodological approaches centred on the media processes of inscription and on the material conditions of literary communication. Every Wednesday at 6 pm (Lisbon time), between June 2 and July 28, 2021, on Zoom. Free event, requiring registration, via e-mail: Registration is valid for all sessions. Conferências MATLIT 2021 (Full Schedule). Organization: MATLIT LAB – Humanities Laboratory, PhD in Materialities of Literature and Centre for Portuguese Literature.
