Prospective Anthology “Culture Shock Philosophy”: A Dissensual Approach to Comparative Studies - CALL FOR ABSTRACTS. Deadline April 15, 2012

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS -- Prospective Anthology

“Culture Shock Philosophy”: A Dissensual Approach to Comparative Studies

Edited by Amy Donahue, Leah Kalmanson, and Sam O. Opondo

Fields such as comparative philosophy, indigenous studies, postcolonial
theory, and transnational feminism challenge assumptions about the
homogeneity and peripheral status of nonwestern cultures in ways that
potentially refuse presumptions of western privilege. The editors of this
prospective anthology invite submissions of papers that bring together —
in new, creative, and perhaps contentious ways — these various disciplines
working within, across, or against comparative theoretical studies. We
especially encourage work that refuses to solely extend genealogically
western textual tools, such as critical theory and deconstruction, into
nonwestern contexts, but instead also draws on indigenous, nonwestern, and
postcolonial intellectual resources to suggest theoretical and practical
possibilities that analytic or continental comparative approaches may
foreclose. For example, how do particular concepts and methods of
nonwestern intellectual traditions strengthen, challenge, conflict, or
resonate with concepts and methods that contemporary critical theorists
deploy to contest the central position of the western subject and the
forms of knowledge it privileges?

Topics that you might choose to engage include, but are certainly not
limited to:

Being and Becoming / Substance and Event
Empty, Relational, or Intersectional Selves
Deconstruction / Feminism / Marxism
Indigeneity / Environmentalism / Ecocriticism
Repetition / Performativity / Ritual
Subjectivity / Embodiment / Desire
Truth / Knowledge / Power

Please send abstracts of approximately 250 words to Amy Donahue at
