Call For Papers

Even though Barthes declared the author dead, he also suggested an unavoidable constructionof a figure or character along the literary communication process throughout his work. In the wake of these suggestions, and also considering Michel Foucault’s textual function approach, recent Literary Theory has been shaping different concepts and theoretical frameworks in order to re-think the author’s validity as a hermeneutical key.

We intend to discuss the relationships between BODY, CORPUS and AUTHORSHIP. The term corpus –regarding an author– refers to the body of texts that compose this author’s work, presupposing the existence of a particular relationship between them. This assumption, however, continually suggests a surprising yet naturalized metaphor: the corpus of an author –that set of related texts– constitutes a body in itself.

The suggested thematic guidelines are:

* (Un)authorized signatures: Gender, sexuality, ethnicity, class and authorship

* Embodied authorship: the performing body

* Corporal metaphors in authorship

* Media supports and authorship: cinema, photographyinterviews, exhibition, house-museum, etc.

* Literary paratexts: cover, inside front cover, review, biography, literary historiography, etc.

* The authorial authority: legitimizing mecanisms

* Artistic and cultural authorships: Writing, thinking, critique and creativity subjects
