Sebastià Alzamora: 750 Years of Catalan Literature on the Balearic Islands, from Ramon Llull to Present Days, lecture in French

Université de Montréal, CTL 1140 Panorama de la littérature catalane

Sebastià Alzamora (Llucmajor, Mallorca, 1972) is a writer, literary critic and cultural manager. He has a degree in Catalan Philology from the University of the Balearic Islands (1995) and combines his literary work with academic activity and cultural management. As a young writer, he soon became known as a solid and bold voice in the Catalan literary panorama, a voice that was at once innovative and well-grounded in the classics. His works tend to portray a society in decadence where the characters disclose their existential doubts. He is part of the peer group known as "Els Imparables" (The Unstoppables), along with Hèctor Bofill and Manuel Forcano, with whom he published the programmatic essay entitled Dogmàtica imparable: Abandoneu tota esperança (Unstoppable Dogmatics: Abandon All Hope, 2005). 

He first made his name with the collection of poems Rafel (1994) after which he published, among other works, Apoteosi del cercle (Apotheosis of the Circle, 1997), Mula morta (Dead Mule, 2001) and El benestar (Well-being, 2003). Some of his poems have appeared in joint anthologies, for exampleImparables (Unstoppables, 2004). He has published the novels L'extinció(Extinction, 1999), Sara i Jeremies (Sara and Jeremies, 2002), La pell i la princesa (The Skin and the Princess, 2005), Nit de l'ànima (2007), Crim de sang (2012), Dos amics de vint anys (2013) and La Malcontenta (2015), along with the essay Gabriel Janer Manila: L'escriptura del foc (Gabriel Janer Manila. Writing of Fire, 1998), and has contributed short stories in a number of collective volumes. Sebastià Alzamora's work has been widely recognized with major prizes and has been translated into Spanish, Italian, French, Portuguese, Hebrew and Slovenian. His novel Crim de sang is forthcoming in English (Blood Crime, SoHo Press) in September 2016.

Ramon Llull 700th Anniversary, exhibit by Bernat Ferragut

Bibliothèque de lettres et sciences humaines, UdeM

Inspired by the life and work of Ramon Llull, the exhibit dives into the potential meanings of Llull's universal symbology. The result is a rich and deep experience of his world through a modern graphic designer's eye. The first part spans through nine illustrations and extracts important concepts of the Lullian universe and his creation. The second part gives free imagination to a more contemporary interpretation of his art through computer generated art and pure computer code.
