  • Derrida Today will invite papers that deal with the ongoing relevance of Derrida’s work and deconstruction to contemporary issues and practices; to the way it reconfigures the academic and social protocols and languages by which such issues are defined and discussed, and innovative artistic practices that adopt a “deconstructive” approach to how our contemporary situation can be represented.
