The Gay and Lesbian Caucus invites 5-10 minute roundtable discussion topics
on the work of Alan Bray. His two main works, Homosexuality in Renaissance
England (1982/1995) and The Friend (2003), span twenty years of academic
achievement in the study of homosexuality, family, and friendship. We are

Nineteenth Century
Leuven University, April 23-25 2009

MARKING THE EVENT

Keynote Address: Professor Michael Warner, Yale University

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE:
The Event changes everything. And yet we have difficulty defining the
event. How do we theorize the transitory? As community members, we mark
events with ceremonies of celebration and mourning. As scholars, we
strive to leave our critical mark. Ultimately we must ask ourselves, do
we mark the event or does the event mark us?

In Memoires: for Paul de Man Derrida writes that the “proper story” of deconstruction would
consist of “transference, and of a thinking through of transference, in all the senses that this
word acquires in more than one language, and first of all that of the transference between
languages,” which leads Derrida to define deconstruction as “plus d’une langue â€" both more than
one language and no more of a single language.”
