In Derrida's Wake
9 October 2009
La Trobe University

8 October 2009 marks the fifth anniversary of the death of French deconstructionist Jacques Derrida. Given Derrida's concern with dates and contexts, but also with notions of trying to mourn for lost friends and the responsibilities of the living towards the dead and their legacies, it seems a more than appropriate time--perhaps a day late, because we hesitate, trying to postpone the inevitable--to bring together some friends and scholars of Derrida, not to mourn a man so concerned with the impossibility of mourning, but to begin to celebrate the enduring influence of deconstruction, to survey the state of play across the disciplines, in Derrida's wake.

The Cartographical Necessity of Exile

Derek Walcott identified a cartographical necessity of exile in his 1984 collection of poetry, Midsummer, when he wrote:

So, however far you have travelled, your
steps make more holes and the mesh is multiplied –
… exiles must make their own maps

*Comparative Postcolonialities*

What is the value of a comparative approach to postcolonial literary and cultural studies? How might a comparative framework impact our knowledge of histories of colonialism and their aftermaths and inform or reform our understanding of concepts such as "colonialism," "coloniality," and "postcoloniality?" This panel hopes to practice a comparative postcolonial
studies by bringing together scholars from across disciplines and
literatures to reflect on colonialism--past and present, internal to nations or externally imposed. Papers might analyze colonial and postcolonial texts (including, but not limited to, literature, media, and film) from single or multiple linguistic and national contexts.
