 Derrida Today


Due dates for Abstracts and Panel Proposals: 30th November 2019 (notification of acceptance of abstracts will be by late-December 2019), abstracts to be sent to: derridatodayconference@gmail.com

The Derrida Today Conference will focus on the ongoing value of either Derrida’s work, or deconstruction, to the political-ethical, cultural, artistic and public debates and philosophical futures that confront us. The conference will be broadly interdisciplinary and invites contributions from a range of academic, disciplinary and cultural contexts. We will accept papers and panel proposals from scholars, academics and postgraduates, on any aspect of Derrida’s work, or deconstruction, in relation to various topics as well as contemporary issues. While the conference welcomes papers on diverse topics and from any discipline in relation to Derrida’s work and deconstruction, it is also interested in discussions around ‘borders’ in light of the current challenges we face in regards to migration and refugees (particularly between Europe and Africa-Middle East), climate change, eco-genocide, and Derrida’s thinking on democracy, community, mondialization and globalization in the face of current ‘border’ closures, heightened sovereign rule, and the European Union-Brexit crisis.
