The 1st International conference for young researchers, A kind of magic: Interdisciplinary visions and insights of magic, will be held at the University of Turin from 29th to 31st May 2024.

The conference will be an opportunity to discuss the theme in the following fields:

  • literature, theater, music, cinema and new media
  • semiotics and ludology
  • linguistics

The conference panels might be thematic and not necessarily based on disciplines, hoping to promote a debate amongst scholars from different fields.


The conference is aimed at PhD students and early researchers (max. 2 years from the end of their PhD). Following the principles of exchange and collaboration at the basis of the conference, multi-participant submissions are welcome.


The official languages of the conference will be Italian, English and French.


Each presentation will last around 20 minutes.


Researchers interested in joining the conference are invited to fill in the online form with the following information:

  • institutional email address
  • name of author(s)
  • affiliation
  • status
  • disciplinary scope of the proposal
  • abstract (max. 2000 characters including spaces, excluding bibliography); the abstract must be attached in .pdf format and must be anonymous: the file name will be a keyword representative of the proposal.


The deadline for submission is 6th December 2023.


Full details are available in the call for papers.
