We will accept papers and panel proposals on any aspect of Derrida’s work or deconstruction in relation to various topics and contemporary issues, such as: philosophy, phenomenology and other theoretical/philosophical thinkers, literature, psychoanalysis, architecture and design, law, film and visual studies, haptic technologies, photography, art, music, dance, embodiment, feminism, race and whiteness studies, politics, ethics, sociology, cultural studies, queer theory, sexuality, education, science (physics, biology, medicine, chemistry), IT and multimedia, technology, etc.
The conference is based on the journal Derrida Today (Chief Editors: Nicole Anderson & Nick Mansfield, Reviews Editor: Martin McQuillan, Associate Editor: Simon Morgan Wortham. The journal is published by Edinburgh University Press, ISSN: 1754-8500).
