Heidegger and the Western Literary Tradition.

This panel will investigate the complex relationships between the work of Martin Heidegger and Western literature from the Greeks until the 20th century. Three distinct questions or areas of investigation will be treated: 

• How did Heidegger use a specific writer in one or more of his philosophical writings?  
• How does Heidegger’s use of a given writer relate to our current understanding of the works and themes of this writer?
• Are there thematic points of contact between Heidegger’s work and literary authors that Heidegger may not have mentioned? Can we point out specific limitations that might result from Heidegger’s philosophical methodology?

Inter-imperiality
Guest Editor: Laura Doyle
Deadline for Submissions: 1 June 2017

The editors of MFS seek essays that engage with the concept of inter-imperiality, as developed in the recent PMLA “Theories and Methodologies” cluster (March 2015) and elsewhere. The global turn in literary and cultural studies, although productive, sometimes elides the post/colonial, economic, and other historical or geopolitical conditions of literary-cultural production. We solicit essays that offset this tendency by reading literary-cultural texts within an inter-imperial framework.

CfP: Out of This World: strangeness, estrangement and alienation in Global South literature

Narratives of discovery have long been produced in Europe about the Global South. Whether travel narratives describing the wonders of the New World, tales of survival in a savage Africa, or a nineteenth-century poet's Voyage en Orient, these texts have made of the Global South the site of estrangement and reexamination of the European self. However, the non-European subject is left unexplored, as in Camus' The Stranger, a novel taking place in French-colonized Algeria, and which notoriously elides the non-European Other, the unnamed Arab murder victim. In this seminar, we turn the tables to examine narratives of estrangement and alienation in Global South literature.
