  • Title: Programs arranged by the Kafka Society of America
    Descriptive info: Sketch of Franz Kafka by artist.. Friedrich Feigl.. Editorial Suggestions.. for Contributors.. Modern Language Association Convention 2014.. Preview of the Kafka Society Roundtable Discussion.. Saturday, January 11, 2014 5:15 6:30 pm, Sheraton 1, Sheraton Chicago Chicago, IL.. Presider: Maria Luise Caputo-Mayr.. Respondent: Dagmar C.. G.. Lorenz.. Special Session #636:.. Kafka s Experiments with Alternative Realities.. Connecting with the preceding Roundtable on Kafka s influence on Post-Holocaust Literature and Film (MLA Boston 2013), the 2014 Roundtable further explores his works as historical documents pointing to contemporary issues and offering daring new visions at the intersection of the human-animal and human-object world, and other transient moments, experiments with alternative realities.. While Kafka s work does not portray his real life circumstances and his times in a realistic way, his lucid, terse prose with its realistic details is replete with allusions to them.. These often find expression in his imaginary creatures , crossing the borderline between the human and the animal realm (horses, mice, dogs), and, similarly objects (the spinning top Odradek, the jumping celluloid balls) as characters that speak quite realistically and point to unexpected alternate existences.. Such experiments comprise also alienating sites (the imaginary America, an unnamed castle, the imaginary Russia, the island of the Penal Colony ).. These presentations attest to the author s wide-ranging intellectual interest and insights, his ability to incorporate many areas of knowledge, factual or utopian and to present them in unique artistic forms.. Sandra Fluhrer (Ludwig Maximilian University, München).. Economy s Comical Other Kafka s World of Remnants / Kafkas komische Restwelten.. focuses on the origin and ontological status of peculiar creatures such as the horses in Ein Landarzt , the jumping balls in Blumfeld , Odradek in Die Sorge des Hausvaters to demonstrate how these are connected to Kafka s procedure of testing language, namely, approaching the inexplicable through minute description.. She applies Freud s economic concept of the comic proposing that Kafka posits an alternative to the rational, purpose-directed economy of his time.. Suspending the economy of cause and effect, according to Fluhrer, reveals the origin of the obscure.. Lynn Marie Kutch (Kutztown University, Kutztown, PA).. Exploring Comic Worlds.. refers to Kafka s wish in a letter to Kurt Wolff (1915) to omit any drawing of Gregor s insect shape on the cover of his book.. Based on a 2011 article by Peter Beicken, Kutch draws two possible conclusions: That either Kafka s text s verbal immediacy needed no graphic presentation and/or that his very language made the transmedial approach of Eric Corbeyran s illustrated text adaptation possible.. The latter, a new comic leading into a Kafkaesque alternative reality makes the reader return to the original text.. Matthew Lau (Queensborough Community College CUNY).. Unheard Melodies and Varieties of Utopia in Several Kafka Texts.. : A comparative analysis of the role of music in The Metamorphosis , The Silence of the Sirens and Josephine the Singer , drawing on ideas by Charles Rosen, Walter Benjamin, and Judith Butler for the argument that Gregor s sister Grete s mediocre violin playing and, in a different way, the silent sirens, point to a fleeting fragile utopia, whereas Josephine s piping creates an image of communal solidarity.. Tone-deaf Kafka s fascination with the idea of music (rather than its execution) showed an affinity with modernist musical techniques, notably, the Sprechgesang and utopian unheard melodies.. Imke Meyer (University of Illinois at Chicago).. Other Subjects: Kafka s Bericht für eine Akademie.. investigates the ape s report as one of the most incisive critiques of Enlightenment models of education and subject formation in Kafka s work and in his era.. Rotpeter s enforced journey to Europe becomes a perverted Bildungsreise.. Rotpeter s transformation into an educated creature produces the vexed image of the emancipatory promise at best.. The dilemma of Kafka s misguided creature fundamentally questions the Humanist educational agenda and the dilemma it creates by trying to lift all creatures out of a state of Unmündigkeit.. Lara Pehar (University of Toronto).. Drawing on Lacan, Bernheimer and E.. Boa points to serious incongruities in Kafka s Castle regarding narrative unity, defying completeness in his final novel.. The incongruities suggest alternative narrative realities exposed by a protagonist who inverts difference and sameness in perception; she emphasizes that despite corrections from the locals, K.. s vision prevails.. He collects Schlossgeschichten told to him, takes control of these texts, and does not survey the castle s physical land, but its narrative landscapes.. The novel could be read as the product of Kafka s experimentation with alternative narrative forms, a carefully crafted hypertext without beginning and ending, proliferating into different directions.. K.. is integral to the text and at the same time its creator.. Sanders Creasy (University of California, Berkeley) [Substitute].. Litera Mortua.. Unreal Corpus.. will focus on Kafka s Das Urteil , and its relation to his journals in which Kafka wrote the story.. It will address a formal gesture, in which a process of literalization or embodiment denatures the reality or consistency of the diegetic world.. In turn, Kafka s journals show him redoubling this gesture in relation to the story as a part of his quotidian world.. Substitute Speakers.. Andrea Dahlmann-Resing (The University of British Columbia).. At Arm s Length, by a Hair s Breadth: Evolutionary Imagery in Der Verschollene and Georg Kaiser s Die Koralle.. Linking both works with evolutionary discourse, as debated in early 20th Century Prague: With examples like chase scenes and their abrupt and continuous elements of locomotion, evolutionary principles of saltation and gradation become evident.. Differences in footing are further negotiated in both pieces use of visuals: from seemingly sessile statues that turn into a charade of pedestals and props, to corals that exemplify their own way of cloning and fail to assign identity and place.. Phillip Lundberg.. Dieseits Jenseits: The Divine and Worldly realms An Analysis of the Parable Before the Law.. : Josef K.. s self-delusions, resolving the supposed contradictions in the parable, the priest s presentation of a range of opinions.. Coming to terms with the Naïveté and Arrogance of the Guardian as well as the childish fantasies as regards the Interior Realm its appearance and meaning.. Modern man s befuddlement and retreat before the spiritual realm is foreordained by Kafka in Josef K.. s haste to leave the Cathedral.. Message to all Members of the Kafka Society of America.. While the Society wishes you all Happy Festivities and thanks for joining us in our efforts, we ask you the favor of checking your dues payments for.. 2012 2014.. and kindly remit them.. We are also sending you our Amended Constitution, December 2013 and ask you to vote on it.. Modern Language Association 2013 KSA Program.. Preview of the Kafka Society Roundtable Presentations.. Boston, MA; January 2013.. The Roundtable discussion deals with recent writers, filmmakers, and visual artists.. The Kafka factor in film and in the visual arts is an important aspect since Kafka has inspired noted filmmakers including O.. Welles, S.. Soderbergh, and M.. Haneke.. Kafka s enduring importance is also evident from the production of second- and third-generation post-Shoah writers and filmmakers.. Clearly, his particular approach to reality informs postmodern art and animation.. The connecting thread between the first four contributions is the question how to respond to brutality, terror, and alienation.. The visual arts component brings a new dimension to the depiction of the invariably sinister situations that extend to contemporary political conditions.. The observations on Welles present an approach for a new political Kafka interpretation.. L.. Johnson.. Resistance after Josef K.. proceeds from J.. M.. Coetzee s references to Kafka s The Trial in his novel.. The Life and Times of Michael K.. , and attempts a bio-political interpretation that avoids a merely historical or existential reading.. Johnson expects the inclusion of a post-Holocaust perspective to reveal hitherto unrecognized forms of passive resistance, even under conditions of abjection.. L.. Wolff.. Inhumane Bureaucracy and Inexplicable Guilt: Echoes of Kafka in H.. Adler s Literary and Scholarly Works.. discusses the transition in Adler s oeuvre from Holocaust documentation (on Theresienstadt and Auschwitz) to fiction, notably the modernist episodic novel Panorama (1948, publ.. 1968; transl.. 2010).. In conjunction with an exploration of the term post-Holocaust literature, Wolff identifies Kafkaesque elements and strategies as well as connections to Kafka s life and suggests that the fate of the protagonist, Joseph Kramer (J.. !), who is subjected to forces alleging his guilt, continues to be highly relevant today.. She raises the question of the prophetic quality of Kafka s work with regard to the bureaucratization and dehumanization under Nazism and beyond.. Modlinger.. The theme of an inhumane bureaucracy is widened by M.. Modlinger s exploration of links between Kafka s and Adler s works, and their influence on W.. Sebald s Austerlitz ( The Kafkaesque in H.. Adler s and W.. Sebald s Literary Historiography ).. Modlinger suggests that the imprisonment in Theresienstadt by an absurd and deadly system mirrors the situation in Kafka s The Castle in reverse.. Sebald s novel adopts configurations developed by both writers in this quest for identity and recognition /and/ for history and memory.. Theresienstadt (near Prague) is the historic manifestation of Kafka s castle with Adler and Sebald acting as surveyors of the borderland between witnessing, memory and poetics.. P.. H.. Kucher.. Kucher points out a reversal of sorts also occuring in the best-selling novel of Holocaust survivor E.. Hilsenrath, Der Nazi und der Friseur (1971).. The theme of an alienating brutal power is manifest in the absurd story of an SS-man with the appearance of the stereotypical Jew of Nazi racial science, Schulz, who can adopt the identity of his Jewish childhood friend he murdered.. Because of his familiarity with Jewish culture and Holocaust history, Schulz joins the Zionist partisans and becomes an Israeli citizen.. The provocative plot is informed by the concept of a fluid identity (as a role play), reminiscent of Kafka.. Past monstrosity is displayed with a highly irritating running commentary, employing the technique of subversive speaking against moralistic post-Holocaust language.. Concluding the presentations are two contributions from visual art/film:.. S.. Jacobowitz.. Jacobowitz presents new aspects of the Kafka factor in five award-winning graphic works that engage with Kafka s works and transcend disciplinary boundaries.. Two of them are films.. They explore themes such as Kafka s criticism of family and society, alienation, persecution, and the grotesque struggle with bureaucracy.. Shaun Tan s The Arrival (2006) features frightening and wondrous visuals without text.. A.. Bechdel s Fun Home.. A Family Tragicomic (2006) revolves around a dysfunctional family; G.. Yang s American Born Chinese (2006) thematizes fitting in and dual identity, M.. Satrapi s Persepolis (film 2007) illustrates an exiled Iranian girl s experiences in Vienna and Paris; A.. Folman s Waltz with Bashir (film 2008 and book 2009), explores personal experiences of the Holocaust generation and the filmmaker s involvement in the Palestinian conflict.. I.. Lewit.. Welles s Dekaf: De-Kafkaing as a post-Holocaust reaction in Orson Welles s The Trial.. discusses Welles s film version of The Trial.. Lewit suggests that the Holocaust functions in the film as part of the strategy Welles incorporates in order to shift The Trial from a metaphysical notion of absence into a political notion of oppression.. This shift motivates Welles s departure from Kafka s text, and, by adding Holocaust remarks, reveals according to Lewit the filmmaker s critique of the Kafkaesque and notions of political conspiracy.. Substitute:.. U.. Katawal.. ,.. Personal and National Allegories in Salman Rushdie s.. Luka and the Fire of Life.. (SUNY Binghamton).. using Kafkaesque metamorphoses to read Rushdie s novel.. Introductory Commentary:.. The Kafka Factor in Post-Holocaust Literature and Film.. Dagmar C.. Lorenz, (Presider and Respondent of the Boston 2013 Kafka Roundtable).. University of Illinois at Chicago.. At the special 2013 session organized by the Kafka Society of America in Boston, the topic under discussion was the Kafka Factor in Post-Holocaust Literature and Film.. The MLA Kafka Roundtable Kafka and the Holocaust in Seattle in 2012 had brought to light connections between Kafka s view of reality, processes leading up to National Socialism and the Holocaust in  ...   book shows Hermann Gebirtig, a Holocaust survivor and Viennese Jew returning from New York to Vienna, where he is to testify in a trial against Egger, a cruel guard of the KZ Ebensee.. Gebirtig encounters numerous obstacles in Vienna and with the Austrian justice system, which works against him, in part reminiscent of Kafka s Trial.. There is a deep sense of distrust and paranoia as a result of the trauma of genocide, both on the part of the second generation of Holocaust survivors and non-Jewish Austrians.. Eva Revesz.. Kafka s Jewish Self-Hatred.. My paper deals with the intersection of two varying though related strands of Kafka scholarship: first, Kafka s own self-image as a Jew, specifically as a self-hating Jew, and second, his status as a prophet of the Holocaust.. An inquiry into the reasons why Kafka s reputation as a Holocaust prophet has all but dissolved fuels my paper.. Why, I ask, has Kafka s one-time status as a visionary of the Holocaust been repressed from more current scholarship? And why has this reading of Kafka been displaced by his supposed Jewish self-hatred in more recent criticism?.. Saskia Ziolkowski.. From Kafka to Primo Levi: Jewish Kafka in Italy.. Using Primo Levi s comments on his translation process of.. as a starting point, this paper investigates Kafka s role as Jewish author in Italy.. Levi commented on the similarities between the world depicted by Kafka and his own experiences as one reason why the editors linked him and the German-language author: this paper explores how Kafka influenced other authors who considered him an emblematic Jewish author before and after the Shoah (Natalia Ginzburg, for instance, cites Kafka as the only Jewish bourgeois author she knew of growing up), as well as offering a treatment of one aspect of the under-examined relations between Kafka and the Italian literary landscape.. Modern Language Association 2011.. Top picture: Audience and panelists at.. 2011; Second row: Picture to the left: Panelists Janko Ferk, Chris Kone, Valerie Reed and Keith Leslie Johnston; Picture in the middle: Austrian guest speaker Janko Ferk and Maria Luise Caputo-Mayr, Director of the Kafka Society.. (photos by Sandra Agnoli).. Los Angeles, CA; January 2011.. Sunday, 09 January 2011.. 8:30 9:45 am, 301B, LA Convention Center.. Interpreting Lives in Kafka s Short Stories.. Peter Beicken.. , University of Maryland, College Park.. Janko Ferk.. , Alpen-Adria Universität Klagenfurt*.. Keith Leslie Johnson.. , Augusta State University.. Christophe Koné.. , Rutgers University, New Brunswick.. Valerie Reed.. , University of Nevada, Reno.. Kafka s works at one level present and represent narrated lives at a crucial cultural and historical crossroads of Western civilization a hundred years ago.. Eschewing realistic hard data, his works capture essential problems of his (and our) time, perceiving it as harboring evil.. Selected prose pieces ( The Metamorphosis, The Judgement, Jackals and Arabs, Report to an Academy, The Burrow and The New Advocate/Dr.. Bucephalus ) show how these mini-biographies and mini-autobiographies illuminate general life circumstances, exploring recent theory and adding a somewhat new perspective to the larger issue of narrating lives.. Kafka s recently published life documents (his office prose) and Stach s new biography add background to these approaches, connecting his work and the fictional lives he created.. New legal connections will be illustrated by Janko Ferk s research.. * Janko Ferk s appearance was sponsored by the City of Klagenfurt, Austria.. Modern Language Association 2009..
