Acknowledging the relevance Clarice Lispector’s work for both Brazilian and World Literature, the Seventh International Symposium on Brazil at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem aims at gathering scholars to promote a dialogue on Lispector’s literary and non-literary writings, from varied perspectives and theoretical approaches. The event will focus on the topic of memory and belonging in Lispector’s work as a starting point for discussions, moving beyond that to critically engage in debates involving other relevant issues concerning her work, such as:
• Comparative readings of Lispector’s works
• Crossing boundaries: genres and intertextuality in Lispector writings
• Lispector within/ beyond a Gender Studies perspective.
• “Writing with the body”, new readings of Lispector’s narrative
• Reading and re-writing: the reception of Lispector’s works
• Lispector in translation.
• Teaching Lispector
