CFP: Eco, Kant and the Platypus: Twenty Years After (guest editors: Valentina Pisanty & Stefano Traini)


Extended Deadline: 15.03.2017

Twenty years ago Umberto Eco published Kant e l’ornitorinco (the English-language version, Kant and the Platypus, came out in 1999), desirous as he was of returning to some topics dealt with in previous works and inspired by the conference held in Cerisy-la-Salle (1996), in which scholars from all over the world subjected his theories to painstaking scrutiny. This marked the birth of a book in which Eco returned – in a manner that was neither organic nor systematic, but with many interconnections – to the principal themes of his semiotic research in order to make statements and invite further discussion, but also to make changes of tack.

CFP: The Languages of Art (guest editor: Cristina Meini)

Deadline: 30.06.2017

Depending on whatkind of thing“language” is intended to be, different artistic–communicative codes can be considered as languages. For example, music is arguably a communicative code with a syntax – though by no means a universal syntax – but without a semantics. Or, perhaps,music has a peculiar semantics connected to the affective domain.Yet, what about dance? Dance and music share dynamicity, what Daniel Stern takes to be the fundamental aspect for communicating “forms of vitality”. Does this imply that dance hasa syntax, or a semantics, too?

Not less interesting are reflections concerning the “languages” of pictorial arts, both figurative and abstract.
