TIME AND HISTORY: WOLE SOYINKA AND THE DRAMA OF EXISTENCE
For its special issue on the philosophical significance of Wole Soyinka's writing, the journal Philosophia Africana solicits relevant articles on any aspects of his versatile work.
Contributors may examine Soyinka's work in any genre - drama, poetry, fiction, occasional essays, or criticism - but we ask that analysis must focus on those themes with special appeal to an audience interested in philosophy. Relevant topics may address issues in one branch or several branches of the discipline, such as: aesthetic theories, philosophy of culture, ethics and morality, epistemology and metaphysics, or philosophy of religion. Other topics may address matters in Soyinka's cultural and social thought from the perspective of existentialism, political theory or activism, theories of tradition and change, or philosophy of history.
Send a title and an abstract (200 words or less) by March 30, 2007. Completed articles (7,000 words or less) are due by November 30, 2007. Submissions and inquiries can be sent by e-mail to: Dr. Peter Gratton, firstname.lastname@example.org or posted to: The Editors, Philosophia Africana, Department of Philosophy, DePaul University, 2352 N. Clifton Ave, Suite 150, Chicago, IL 60614. For detailed “Notes for Contributors” visit: http://condor.depaul.edu/~africana/html/notes.html
