INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Ninety years since Martin Heidegger's Being and Time.

This year marks the ninetieth anniversary of the publication of one of the most decisive and fruitful works of contemporary thought: Martin Heidegger’s Being and Time (1927). The radicalism and originality of this work have made it an essential reading for the understanding of the philosophy of the twentieth century, influencing also fields such as plastic arts, literature, psychology and psychoanalysis, anthropology, sociology , education and theology, among many other disciplines.

To mark this occasion, the Centro de Escritura y Pensamiento Otrosiglo together with the Academia de Artes y Humanidades Taller 112, invite students, professors and researchers to participate sending unpublished manuscripts for publication of a commemorative book about Being and Time.

The writing pieces can be expositions -critical and/or exegetical- about some concept or section of the work, as well as its relationship with other works, authors and/or disciplines.
