First academic conference to study the works of Ivo Brešan


Letter of Invitation

The First May of Brešan
An International Scientific Conference Dedicated to the Work of Ivo Brešan:

Text and Context:
Zadar, May 18 - May 20, 2018

Dear colleagues!

Although the title of Ivo Brešan's last book, The Dead Need Nothing (Mrtvima ništa ne treba), has a certain finality to it, we cannot accept the departure of this great artist as the end of the potential of his creative opus.

Ivo Brešan has mostly been perceived by the general public as a dramatist, although he contributed significant work for film and television (in collaboration with Krsto Papić, Veljko Bulajić, Danijel Marušić and Vinko Brešan), and from the mid-nineties directed most of his efforts to the writing of prose. Recent criticism (theatre, film and literary) has long noted Brešan'€™s continuing interest in the political, ideological and personal problems involved in what it means to be human. Scholars such as Marijan Bobinac, Lada Čale Feldman, Dalibor Foretić, Darko Gašparović, Branko Hećimović, Zvonimir Mrkonjić, Boris Senker, and also Velimir Visković, who have written on Brešan, agree that the sense of the grotesque that this author used in order to dissect dogmatic, bureaucratic, careerist and collective manifestations of the spiritual malaise of society, as well as party and clerical ideologies and mythologies, possesses recognizable element of caricature in both his theatrical and prose texts. The creation of a symbolic language, as well as specific idiolects, opens a path for research in the (de)construction of a linguistic stereotype.

The conflict between barbarism and culture, often presented in a dystopian fashion, which does not avoid either "Arcadian" micro collectives or highly hierarchical ones, is constructed with a provocative use of genre and with postmodern approaches and procedures.

The primary aim of this conference is to explore the various dimensions of Brešan'€™s literary and artistic work from a variety of perspectives (theatre and drama studies, literary theory, history, sociology, anthropology, linguistics, culture studies et al.), which will contribute to a greater understanding of this unique and valuable opus. All topics are welcomed, whether individually or co-authored, which examine the different aspects of Brešan's work. This includes the reception of his work, in Croatia and abroad, in the Academy and in (higher) education, as well as in various types of artistic and cultural media.

We invite you to participate in a scientific conference which will take place at the University of Zadar from May18 - 20, 2018.

Located on the Adriatic Coast, Zadar is a world heritage city that dates back to the ancient Romans. Its attractions include Forum Romanum, St Donatus'€™ Church, The Sea Organ, and many others.

The plenary speakers are: Academic Boris Senker, Academic Krešimir Nemec and Associate professor Nikica Gilić.

We look forward to your participation and ask that you send your application form by December 1, 2017 to the following e-mail address: bresan2018@unizd.hr

You will receive a notice of acceptance by December 20, 2017.

The allotted time for each presentation is 15 minutes.

Presentations may be in either Croatian or English.

A final copy of your paper should be received by December 1, 2018 for publication in the conference proceedings.

Participants are responsible for their own accommodation and travel and other expenses. A registration fee of 30 EUR must be paid by February 1, 2018.

Participants will receive information on the registration fee payment and presentation format once their abstract has been accepted.

Our sincere regards!

Pozivno pismo

Prvi Brešanov svibanj
Međunarodni znanstveni skup o djelu Ive Brešana:

tekst i kontekst
Zadar, 18. svibnja -€“ 20. svibnja 2018.

Poštovane kolegice, poštovani kolege!

Premda je naslovom svoje posljednje knjige, Mrtvima ništa ne treba, Ivo Brešan ostavio poruku kojoj ne možemo proturječiti, odlazak velikog umjetnika ipak ne možemo prihvatiti kao zatvaranje potencijala njegova stvaralačkog opusa.

Ivu Brešana javnost najčešće percipira kao kazališnog pisca, premda je ostvario značajne rezultate pišući i za film i televiziju (suradnja s Krstom Papićem, Veljkom Bulajićem, Danijelom Marušićem i Vinkom Brešanom), a od sredine 90-ih godina prošlog stoljeća bio je posvećen pretežito pisanju proze. Dosadašnja je kritika (teatrološka, filmska i književna) zapazila Brešanovo konstantno zanimanje za političke, ideološke i osobne čovjekove probleme. Iz pisanja o Brešanu Marijana Bobinca, Lade Čale Feldman, Dalibora Foretića, Darka Gašparovića, Branka Hećimovića, Zvonimira Mrkonjića, Borisa Senkera ili pak Velimira Viskovića, razvidno je da se proučavatelji slažu kako groteska kojom taj autor rastvara dogmatske, birokratske, karijerističke, kolektivne duševne poremećaje, partijsku i klerikalnu ideologiju i nacionalnu mitologiju posjeduje prepoznatljivu karikaturalnu formulu i u kazališnim i u proznim tekstovima. Kreiranje simboličnoga dijalekta te idiolekatska stilizacija filmskoga i scenskoga govora otvaraju i polje proučavanja (de)konstrukcije jezičnoga stereotipa.

Dubina sukoba barbarstva i kulture, prikazana često distopijski, koja ne mimoilazi ni "€œarkadijske"€ mikro kolektivitete kao ni intelektualno i društveno visoko hijerarhizirane zajednice, izgrađena je i žanrovski izazovno u smislu postmodernističkih pristupa i postupaka.

Primarni cilj skupa je predstavljanje i istraživanje raznolikih dimenzija Brešanova književno-umjetničkoga opusa iz različitih perspektiva, od teatrološke i dramatološke, filmološke, književno teorijske, povijesne, sociološke, antropološke, lingvističke, kulturološke do svih drugih koje će doprinijeti temeljitijem razumijevanju i sagledavanju ovoga specifičnoga i vrijednoga opusa. Poželjne su i dobrodošle sve teme koje u središte svojih razmatranja, pojedinačno ili skupno, uključuju različite sastavnice Brešanova djela i njegove osobitosti; koje uključuju recepciju i refleksije o njegovu djelu, kako u domovini, tako i u inozemstvu, u akademskom i obrazovnom sustavu te u različitim vrstama umjetničkih i kulturnih medija.

Stoga Vas pozivamo da svojim sudjelovanjem doprinesete znanstvenom skupu koji će se održati na Sveučilištu u Zadru od 18. do 20. svibnja 2018. godine.

Plenarna izlaganja održat će: akademik Boris Senker, akademik Krešimir Nemec i izv. prof. dr. sc. Nikica Gilić.

Radujući se Vašem sudjelovanju molimo da popunjeni Prijavni obrazac pošaljete najkasnije do 1. prosinca 2017. na adresu e-pošte: bresan2018@unizd.hr

Obavijest o prihvaćanju teme izlaganja sudionici će dobiti najkasnije do 20. prosinca 2017.

Predviđeno trajanje izlaganja sudionika skupa je 15 minuta.

Jezici skupa su hrvatski i engleski.

Radove za tisak potrebno je poslati do 1. prosinca 2018.
