After Clarice: Lispector’s Legacy commemorated the fortieth anniversary of Clarice Lispector’s death, but also aimed to analyse her legacy and influence as it has developed in the decades since. This international gathering evaluated the fluctuations and swerves in Lispector’s critical fortunes, and focus, as well, on the way her works have evolved in translation into other languages and cultures and through other disciplines (film, music, sports and visual arts). Additionally, our conference addressed Lispector’s status as a Jewish writer, issues of class and race in her work, translation and reception, as well as the politics of publishing and marketing Lispector for international readerships.  Prof. Marta Peixoto (New York University), an internationally recognized scholar of Lispector, provided a keynote address.
