Call for Papers

  • The upcoming May 2017 issue of Flusser Studies is being organized by Eva Batličková and Rainer Guldin. The focus of the issue is upon Vilém Flusser’s relationship to Judaism and the influence of Jewish culture on his thinking and writing. There is a broad range of possible approaches to Flusser’s work with relation to Judaism: Flusser’s early Zionist leanings, the influence of Jewish culture on his thinking and writing, the presence of Jewish elements in his work (for instance the late discovery of the notion of Pilpul), the question of Auschwitz and its relation to Bodenlosigkeit and post-history, as well as the importance of Jewish writers and thinkers like his cousin David Flusser, Martin Buber, Agnon and Franz Kafka.
    The deadline for submissions for the issue is January 15, 2017. We look forward to hearing from and working with you. Please let us know if you are interested in contributing and if you have any questions.
