Модели Гостеприимства (Models of Hospitality)

Three interesting essays on hospitality in a 2004 issue of Новое Литературное Обозрение (New Literary Review)

The summaries in English (full-text in Russian below):


These three articles about Traditional and modern models of hospitality are issued from a Franco-Russian conference which took place in Moscow in October 2002.

Alain Montandon (Blaise Pascal University, Clermont-Ferrand, France), in his article Hospitality — an ethnographic delusion? analyses the myth of “good old” hospitality, and shows the unstable and contradictory character of this current mythology, which he illustrates through the example of a novel by contemporary Albanian writer, Ismail Kadari.

Marie Gaille-Nikodimov (Blaise Pascal University, Clermont-Ferrand, France), in her essay, Is a humanistic philosophy of hospitality possible? discusses the philosophical and legal problem of the theoretical framework of a purely “humanistic philosophy of hospitality”, in other words whether being hospitably received in a foreign country may be regarded as a human right, independently of any considerations of the political and cultural identity of the person welcomed (following the works of Jacques Derrida and Etienne Balibar).

Sergey Zenkin (Russian State University for the Humanities, Moscow) in his theoretical essay Towards anthropological and literary definitions of hospitality proposes to distinguish between two concepts of hospitality, the “anthropological” and the “literary” one; the former, Zenkin writes, is based on a reciprocal exchange, and the latter on unilateral gifts.
