CALL FOR ABSTRACTS Journal of Comparative Literature and AestheticsSpecial Issue: New Perspectives in African Philosophy  Guest Editor: Adoulou N. Bitang (Tel Aviv University, Israel) For over three decades, from the middle of the 20th century onward, reflection about African philosophy revolved around the question of its existence or non-existence (following that of the capacity of Africans and Blacks to philosophize), or the other question of its nature (i.e., its characteristics, especially in relation to European philosophy). To a certain extent, African philosophy is still concerned with these questions today. For the most part, this treatment of African philosophy has a colonial background and bears a colonial flavor.

Utopias and (their opposite) dystopias arise from the urge to describe a possible world, a hard-to-come-true probability. Therefore, they either promise good news or foreshadow a warning for the future, depending on the benign or malign nature of the urge.

Identity, role and gender have their parts to play in narratives, and recognition may be a feature in plots. Clothing functions in a cultural, semiotic, system. It’s a signifier in the Bible and Shakespeare. We look for associations with Christian and Biblical themes in literary texts, and papers will have a reading time of 20 minutes.

These familiar and possibly reassuring surroundings can hide important mysteries, including secret and magical passages or vampire-teachers, thus creating either worry or wonder.

Monday, February 28, 2022

In Episode 9 of James Joyce's Ulysses, “Scylla and Charybdis,” Stephen Dedalus develops a theory about the origins of Shakespeare’s works that is both original and controversial. It is in the National Library of Ireland that Dedalus, in a wild and winding conversation, develops his ‘Hamlet theory’. The episode stages the strong and sometimes comic appeal of a biographical approach to Shakespeare’s works and, at the same time, casts Dedalus – Joyce’s alter ego – variously as Hamlet, Hamlet’s father, Shakespeare, and as a modern-day Ulysses.

*Selected papers will be published in a post-conference volume with ISBN.

Life-history approach occupies the central place in conducting and producing  (auto)biographical and (auto)ethnographic studies through the understanding of self, other, and culture. We construct and develop conceptions and practices by engaging with memory through narrative, in order to negotiate ambivalences and uncertainties of the world and to represent (often traumatic) experiences.
