What Remains: Of Glas

To mark the fortieth year of its publication, as well as to commemorate Jacques Derrida a decade after his passing, The Modern & Contemporary Colloquium of the English Department at NYU is hosting an event on Jacques Derrida’s Glas. Speakers include:.

Catherine Malabou (Kingston University, London), “Philosophy in Erection”, Geoffrey Bennington (Emory University, currently Visiting Professor, NYU), “Method and Metaphor in Derrida’s Glas”, Martin McQuillan (Kingston University, London), “Derrida Amongst the Palestinians”, Simon Morgan Wortham (Kingston University, London), “Fleeced”, Tina Chanter (Kingston University, London), “Antigone, Hegel, Derrida”, with closing remarks from Juliet Fleming (NYU).

The seminar will explore this most complex and challenging text, in order to work on a number of interconnected problems and themes, including Derrida’s deconstruction of the Hegelian interpretation of Antigone, the philosophy of familial and civil life, questions of sexual difference and dissidence, Derrida’s treatment of anthological gathering and of ‘transcendental excrescence’ in the text, motifs and readings of the Judaic and the Christian, the bicolumnar structure and typographical layout of Glas itself, the philosophical and political relevance of Glas today, and so on.
