In his 1934 essay on Kafka, Walter Benjamin pointed out that the issue of the "organization of life and work in the human community", that runs through Kafka´s oeuvre and, indeed, the organization itself, has taken the place of fate in modernity. Importantly, the organization and law are not only the subject of Kafka´s texts; rather their discourses, which so greatly determine our current era of modernity, are structurally related to his very literary oeuvre. The aim of this workshop is to explore these structural relations and thereby open a dialogue between social, legal and literary sciences.
