CALL FOR PAPERS
for a Workshop on "Philosophy and Kafka" to be held at the 12th international conference of ISSEI (International Society for the Study of European Ideas) at Cankaya University, Ankara, Turkey on August 2-6, 2010. The theme of the conference is "Thought in Science and Fiction."

It is sometimes said that Franz Kafka's novels and stories defy philosophic extrapolation. Conversely, it has also been suggested that precisely the tendency of Kafka's writings to elude discursive solution is itself a philosophical tendency, one that is somehow contributing to a wiser relationship of human beings with language.

As part of a proposed panel for the upcoming International Conference on Narrative, we are seeking papers on the general theme of Biblical narrative. Scholars are not limited to a specific period or genre, and may choose to compare/contrast Biblical material with other literary narratives. A grounding in narrative theory will help since this is primarily a conference for specialists, but it is not necessary for theory to be your primary area of study. We welcome scholars from all fields, and anticipate particular interest from those in English, cultural studies, and comparative/religious studies.

    CFP Affinities #4 – What is Radical Imagination: Horizons beyond "The Crisis"

    Edited by Alex Khasnabish and Max Haiven

    The social crises of neoliberalism, so evident and provocative throughout the rest of the world, have finally come "home" to the global North in the form of a cataclysmic financial crisis wreaking havoc on the lives of people, workers and communities, intensifying already intolerable injustices and inequalities and justifying the intensification of surveillance, policing and militarization.

    tratti di testi medievali, dove lʼallegoria era istituzionalizzata nel sistema dei quattro livelli
    ermeneutici del testo (letterale, morale, allegorico e anagogico), oppure di testi moderni
    che spesso sono stati letti, almeno dalla lezione di Walter Benjamin in avanti, come testi
    allegorici.
