“What deconstruction is not? everything of course!

What is deconstruction? nothing of course!”

 


– Derrida, Letter to a Japanese Friend

Welcome to Derrida Today

Derrida Today is a home and space for discussion about the works of Derrida and their relevance today. The aim is to see Derrida’s work in its broadest possible context and to argue for its keen and enduring relevance to our present intellectual, cultural, ethical and political situations.

The site hosts news and information for speakers and attendees of upcoming Derrida Today conferences.

It also serves as an interface for scholars interested in publishing in the biannual Derrida Today journal, as well as for readers interested in subscribing to it.

“Within the university… you can study without
waiting for any efficient or immediate result.
You may search, just for the sake of searching,
and try for the sake of trying”

-Jacques Derrida
