>TEXT AND ETHICS: This is an open call for submission proposals of
>300-400 words for a book to be published in the fall of 2004.. We aim
>to clarify further the continuum that exists between descriptive and
>interpretive criticism of the treatment of issues that can be termed
>ethical in texts and in production (including the production of
>criticism itself), and ethical criticism as a reader or cultural
>response practice, whether the focus is on e.g. fiction, autobiography,
>biography, poetry, microhistory, etc. The texts can be theoretical or
>based on closer readings of specific texts.
>Questions that we want to address include:
>-- what are the ethics of the text? of its production? of its reading?
>-- can readings that focus on ethics be made without referring to an
>epistemological, political or ideological absolute?
>-- literature and the formulation of an intersubjective ethics
>(reading literature as/with/against philosophy)
>-- is ethical writing possible? what should govern what may or may not
>be told? who may or may not tell the story/-ies?
>-- what is the relationship of the aesthetic to ethics?
>-- what is the relationship between/what are the different roles of
>ethics in postcolonial studies? Gender studies? Holocaust studies?
