Call for Papers:

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.

The conference is based on the journal Derrida Today (Chief Editor: Nicole Anderson). The journal is published by

Edinburgh University Press, ISSN: 1754-8500. EUP Website:
