Surrealism, a major movement in literature and art, began in Paris after the First World War and generated major artists and artworks for over fifty years. It has fostered strong international membership; in Europe as well as in Japan, Morocco, Egypt, Mexico, Chile, Haiti, Cuba, and the United States. Today the movement’s influence permeates contemporary poetry, art, and philosophy, as well as the history of leftist and anti-colonial politics.

This two-day International Conference aims to unify the field of Surrealism studies in the arts and humanities by bringing together scholars and curators from both sides of the Atlantic.
