The presentation addresses the relationship between international law and literature using the work of Kafka[1] and its analysis by Deleuze and Guattari[2] In doing so it also discusses the interplay of methodological approaches in both areas and will argue that international law informed by literary theory can uncover new potentials for a radical rethinking of many traditional notions of public international law. [1] Kafka’s The Castle and Before the Law are the two main reference points. However, other works of Kafka are also used to the extent to which they provide better examples and illustrations.

Translated into English as Kafka: Towards a Minor Literature, Minneapolis, University of Minnesota Press, 1986.
