There is no custom of hospitality here, we do not need guests.'
--Kafka The Castle
The ethics of Hospitality is embedded with the politics of national and foreign diplomacy in Immanuel Kant's Perpetual Peace Treaty (1798) in which he puts forth the hypothesis that the extension of this action is not of one related to philanthropy, but of one related to right. Jacques Derrida further defines this 'right' proposed by Kant as one 'in relation to citizenship, the state, the subject of the state' going so far as to declare that it is an 'international right' (Derrida 3).
The Literature and Science session of the RMMLA invites interpretive
papers focusing on science and its intersection with written
methods of transmission. They might include the reuse of
scientific matter in literary forms; the relationship of
individual writers to science and of certain scientists to
literary figures of their day; the combination of scientific
and literary methods of knowledge making. Papers focusing on
the representation or integration of science in specific
literary texts are especially encouraged. However, proposals
dealing with any aspect of the interdisciplinary field of
literature and science are welcome.
