  • Rijeka

Based at Queen Mary University of London, The European Research Council project ‘TextDiveGlobal’ ( is working towards a literary history of Europe and its global connections between the two sieges of Vienna (1529-1683). Our seminar (day 1 in the University of Rijeka Library 8.30am-12pm; days 2 and 3 in the Moise Palace on Cres), will integrate presentations by scholars of medieval and early modern Croatian cultural history (Jasenka Gudelj, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice; Zrinka Stahuljak, UCLA; Luka Špoljarić University of Zagreb) with presentations by our own project members. Contributors to our literary history from around the world will present their work-in-progress, while other members of the project (in Rijeka, Cres and online) and local guests will be invited to comment and discuss. Many but not all of the papers by our own contributors will focus on ‘Forms’. Topics range from puppets to portraits, melodies to administrative letters, court festivities to romances, race-making to poetics, and regions from New Spain to Ukraine, Scandinavia to Kongo, Portugal to the Philippines, Turkey to China. Host: Prof. Ivan Lupić, University of Rijeka TextDiveGlobal Team (Queen Mary University of London): Prof. Warren Boutcher, Dr Clare Whitehead, Dr Máté Vince, Dr Christopher Archibald.
