MATLIT 1.1.: presentation of first issue

2013-07-07

The presentation of the first issue of the journal MATLIT is scheduled for July, 11, 2013, 4.30 pm, Center for Portuguese Literature at the University of Coimbra. MATLIT is an online journal published by the Doctoral Program in Advanced Studies in the Materialities of Literature, School of Arts and Humanities, University of Coimbra. MATLIT emerges as a forum for articulating the teaching and research components of the program, and for engaging the international critical debate in this field, on a platform particularly suited to publication of work whose intermedia nature is not always compatible with paper. It is our intention to establish MATLIT as a reference publication in a field that is bound to grow, and which extends from literary studies to comparative media studies and to digital humanities. The journal will use the following working languages: Portuguese, English, Spanish, French, and Italian. It will develop an admittedly interdisciplinary and transmedial perspective, and it will be organized in thematic issues. For each issue a Call for Papers will be produced. All issues are published in both HTML and PDF format. Readers have free access to the full contents of the journal.

MATLIT is structured into six sections: 1) Thematic Section; 2) Non-Thematic Section; 3) Interview; 4) Mediascape; 5) Reviews; 6) Call for Papers. MATLIT Vol. 1.1 includes selected essays from the conference «Estranging Pessoa with the Materialities of Literature», May 25, 2012, organized by the Center for Portuguese Literature at the University of Coimbra.
