"Derrida's Legacies," London School of Economics, March 1, 2008.
Marking the release of Derrida’s Legacies: Literature and Philosophy by Routledge this conference will present the work of a new generation of Derrida scholars. Bringing together recent thinking across disciplines, it will explore what it means to be thinking with, through, and alongside Derrida’s work today - addressing the questions of Derrida’s legacies and possible futures for his work. The event will explore Derrida’s influence, current trends and debates in Derrida scholarship, and will focus on particular texts. Following the Forum for European Philosophy’s development of innovative presentational formats, the conference will provide an opportunity for young researchers (graduate students and recent PhDs) to present their work beyond the confines of a traditional academic ‘paper’ and to lend their ideas to a more open-ended and informal discussion. A visual artist will also introduce their work, as a ‘provocation’ to Derrida’s legacies of thought. Speakers: Shahidha Bari, Phil Newman, Gerald Moore, Céline Condorelli, Devorah Baum, Sas Mays, Danielle Sands, Oisin Keohane, Nemonie Craven, Richard Fitch, Sarah Dillon Speakers: Shahidha Bari, Phil Newman, Gerald Moore, Céline Condorelli, Devorah Baum, Sas Mays, Danielle Sands, Oisin Keohane, Nemonie Craven, Richard Fitch, Sarah Dillon.
