On the Aesthetic Legacy of Ishmael Reed:
Contemporary Reassessments

Under this working title, Paul Tayyar (Golden West, California) and Sämi Ludwig (UHA Mulhouse, France) want to collect the views of young scholars and artists who represent yet another generation cherishing Ishmael Reed's work. After a furious start in the 1960s, Reed found a place in the contemporary African-American canon in the 1970s when some major criticism appeared on his writing. In the 1980s interest in him slackened--although we know that many young scholars in particular love his stories, his poems, and his essays.

Writing the World: Representation of the Cultural, Political and Natural World in Medieval and Renaissance Europe

'What can we know of the world? What quantity of space can our eyes hope to take in between our birth and our death? How many square centimetres of Planet Earth will the soles of our feet have touched?' (Georges Perec, Species of Spaces, p. 78).

'… perceiving that the earth is a form of writing, a geography of which we had forgotten that we ourselves are the authors.' (Georges Perec, Species of Space, p. 79).
