Keynotes: *Hélène Cixous *Jean-Luc Nancy *Sam Weber (Northwestern) *Gil Anidjar (Columbia) *Danielle Cohen-Lévinas (Paris-Sorbonne) *Anne-Emmanuelle Berger (Paris 8)
The conference will be broadly interdisciplinary and invites contributions from a range of academic, disciplinary and cultural contexts. We will consider papers and panel proposals on any aspect of Derrida’s work, or deconstruction, in relation to various topics and 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.
