Call for Proposals – Maius Workshop Meeting: ‘Time’, new date TBA

Vánitas: mesa revuelta, reloj, espejo, jarrones, 17th century, Museo Del Prado

The next meeting of The Maius Workshop will take place on Zoom.

For this meeting, The Maius Workshop team are inviting proposals for 10-minute presentations relating to the theme of ‘time’. Topics could include significant historical dates, literary or visual reflections upon time, experiences of temporality, delays in people/objects travelling between Europe and the Americas, notions of timeliness and belatedness, innovation and tradition, etc.

Speakers are encouraged to focus their talks on a particular case study (object, extract, document, etc.), which plays a role in their research and can spark creative discussion. Feel free to present the group with a problem or apparent dead end and rack the brains of the collective mind!

Maius is a friendly platform for informal dialogue and collaborative research for anyone who is interested in Hispanic cultures, widely considered. Our sessions are open to all, and research in early stages of development is especially welcome.

If you are interested in presenting, please send an email to maiusworkshop@gmail.com with a title, short bio and 100-word abstract by January 1, 2022.

To attend the event, please register here: https://ucl.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJYodeCsqjwiEtzZPBBnWae5hAt2da71uXKO

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. We will circulate information about the presentations prior to the event.
