This inaugural issue of MATLIT dedicates its thematic section to the conference «Estranging Pessoa with the Materialities of Literature», which took place on May 25, 2012, at the Center for Portuguese Literature, University of Coimbra. This one-day conference was jointly organized by the Doctoral Program in Materialities of Literature, the Center for Portuguese Literature (CLP) at the University of Coimbra, and the Laboratory of Advanced Literary Studies (ELAB) at the New University of Lisbon. The selected papers are the result of two ongoing research projects about Fernando Pessoa's work: No Problem Has a Solution: A Digital Archive of the Book of Disquiet (CLP, 2012-2015) and Estranging Pessoa (ELAB and IFL, 2013-2015).
