Derrida Today conference: change of venue announcement

The following is an announcement from the Derrida Today conference organisers.

Last week the British Academy informed us that the venue was no longer suitable to host the conference due to extensive building works. These works involve excavation and drilling in all rooms and toilets. This is the reason for the delay in getting you the program. Before finalising the program we wanted to make sure we could secure a new venue that would accomodate our needs and still be located in the heart of London. And we have found it:

We are really pleased that the new venue for the Derrida Today conference is the Goodenough College (attached to the Goodenough Club) in Bloomsbury, Central London. Please feel free to cirluclate widely the change of venue.

The closest tube station to the Goodenough College is Russell Square (a 5 mins walk), and is only 3 tube stops (10 mins) from Piccadilly Circus (Piccadilly Circus is near the old venue), on the Piccadilly line. Alternatively it is 2 stops from Oxford Circus to Holborn, then change at Holborn for the next stop: Russell Square (again only 10 mins).

The address and link (and map) for the Goodenough College is: Mecklenburgh Square, London WC1N 2AB, United Kingdom. See:
and for more ‘about’ the college and its international reputation see:

The Goodenough College is across the road from the Goodenough Club (for those of you who have booked accomodation at the Club).

The final program is attached and will be uploaded onto the Derrida Today website. Everyone, thank you for your patience with the delay in the program and for pointing out errors, etc., which has been much appreciated given the circumstances under which we have been working. The program and the intellectual community around the work of Derrida is exciting, and we are looking forward to seeing you all at the conference at the Goodenough College on the 19th July.
