>Kafka is of perennial interest to scholars in areas extending far 
>beyond German literature. He has been read and interpreted by 
>luminaries such as Benjamin, Arendt and Adorno, has gone on to 
>influence a vast range of literature, theatre, cinema and theory, 
>and has left his indelible mark on everyday culture with the 
>ubiquitous term 'Kafkaesque'. In the midst of an abundance of 
>scholarship we hold that Kafka, his milieu and his work continue to 
>merit analysis, discussion and debate.
>
>We will accept papers from across the disciplines, including but not 
>limited to German and Comparative literature, visual arts, 
>performing arts, film studies, history, architecture and musicology.

>other topic relating to Kafka will also be gladly considered:

>literature, theatre or music
