CfP: Philosophy and Kafka

This project is already somewhat developed.  In order to supplement an already established list of contributions, the editors will be selecting ONE proposal for EACH of the following specific topics:

1) Hannah Arendt on Kafka

2) Theodor W. Adorno on Kafka

The two selected proposals will show an obvious concern with how philosophy might relate to, or be incipient in, Franz Kafka’s stories and novels.

A principal purpose of the book will be to consider various conceptions of the relationship of literature and philosophy.

Please send a proposal of approximately 300 words, as well as a short bio, by November 1, 2010 to both of the volume editors:

Brendan Moran ( and Carlo Salzani (

The likely deadline for complete essays is April 1, 2011.
