Jacques Derrida: L'écriture et la différence – Writing and Difference (2023) is a one-day conference to be held on February 20, 2023 regarding the work of Jacques Derrida (July 15, 1930 – October 9, 2004).

Papers are invited that touch on his characteristic treatment of a variety of subjects: philosophy and philosophical historicism (analytic and continental), writing, difference and ‘différance’; the ontology, epistemology and literature of identity, deconstruction, religion and belief, war and peace; Ghost Dance (1983, film), Derrida’s Elsewhere (1999, film), Derrida (2002, film), structure and play, politics and sovereignty, biology, animality, extreme phenomena (e.g. COVID-19, UFOs/UAPs, Earth’s heating climate, A.I., etc.), art, fiction and narrative, violence, law, power, metaphysics, critical inquiry and so on. 

 

A special print volume of selected conference papers will be published by Intertheory Press after the event, slated for release sometime in 2023.

 

Presentations will be streamed live over Zoom; 20 minutes are allocated for each presentation, with Q&A time up to twenty minutes, as needed; audience questions may be submitted via Zoom chat. The live Zoom presentations and Q&A will not be recorded by Intertheory Press or Kritikos. Participants are free to record presentations if they wish.

Paper submissions may be sent to editor@intertheory.org

Conference registration is available here. The deadline is 31 December 2022.
