  • Derrida Today will focus on what Derrida’s thought offers to contemporary debates about politics, society and global affairs.
  • Derrida Today will explore how Derridean thought and deconstruction make significant contributions to contemporary issues and practices.
  • Derrida Today will invite papers that deal with the ongoing relevance of Derrida’s work and deconstruction to contemporary issues and practices; to the way it reconfigures the academic and social protocols and languages by which such issues are defined and discussed, and innovative artistic practices that adopt a “deconstructive” approach to how our contemporary situation can be represented.
  • Derrida Today will accept articles on any aspect of Derrida’s work or deconstruction in relation to various topics and contemporary issues, such as: philosophy and other theoretical/philosophical thinkers, literature, psychoanalysis, architecture, law, film and visual studies, photography and art , embodiment, feminism, race studies, politics, ethics, sociology, cultural studies, queer theory, sexuality, education, etc.
