CALL FOR PAPERS
MOSAIC, a journal for the interdisciplinary study of
literature announces an
INTERNATIONAL INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE
FOLLOWING DERRIDA: LEGACIES
OCTOBER 4 – 7, 2006
THE UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA, WINNIPEG,
Peter Eisenman, Catherine Malabou, Michael Naas
This commemorative conference will mark the second
anniversary of the death of Jacques Derrida with a celebration
of his work and an exploration of its promises, still to come.
The occasion will be one for paying homage to Derrida by
way of "counter-signing" his texts, or by way of "following,"
as he understood the term: in response to something other in a
work, the attempt to make a difference. Proposals (in the
form of a title and 250 word abstract) are invited for
presentations from across the disciplines that engage
Derrida's work and its legacies through consideration of such
topics as: art, architecture, archive, memory, mourning,
history, temporality, trace, responsibility, ethics, politics,
spectrality, structure, friendship, hospitality, futurity,
institution, psychoanalysis, literature, philosophy – and
deconstruction. Proposals should include a brief c.v. (no
more than two pages).
Deadline for submission of proposals: January 16, 2006.
Graduate students presenting a paper at the conference may be
eligible for a travel grant. Those intending to apply for a
travel grant should enclose a covering letter with their abstract
detailing anticipated travel costs for the conference.
Information will be available from the Mosaic web site in
spring of 2006: www.umanitoba.ca/mosaic.
