Seminar at the American Comparative Literature Association Annual Meeting
March 17-20, 2016; Harvard University; Cambridge, MA, USA

What is the role of deconstruction today, and how is it poised to help shape our critical future? Some 50 years since Derrida’s and de Man’s first influential writings, how do their thought and legacy continue to be relevant? How can they, and the heterogeneous discourses to which their writings have given rise, be inherited today? This seminar aims to bring together scholars from a variety of critical fields to investigate ways in which deconstructive thinking intervenes – or should intervene – in current methodologies and theoretical debates. This project requires us not only to appraise the status quo and futures of deconstruction but also to identify emerging trends and sensibilities in critical theory broadly conceived.
Furthermore, Derrida’s recently published last seminars on sovereignty and capital punishment call for an investigation of the changing ethico-political import of deconstruction today. These lectures, written in the wake of 9/11, urgently address questions of violence, international law, and democracy, i.e. , questions highly relevant to a global community marred by the rise of extremism. How, in other words, does “the unfinished project of deconstruction” continue to “change things and to intervene in an efficient and responsible, though always, of course, very mediated way, not only in the profession but in what one calls the cité, the polis, and more generally the world” (Derrida, “Force of Law”)?
Finally, one of the most fruitful transdisciplinary areas of inquiry in the critical field in recent years has been aesthetic theory and philosophical aesthetics. What is the relation between the classical concerns of deconstructive thinking and the renewed emphasis on aesthetic theory? How does the work of art, broadly conceived, help us to understand fundamental questions pertaining to the knowability of the world in which we find ourselves and in which we encounter the challenge of aesthetic form?
Topics could include but are not limited to:
- deconstruction and its relevance to recent theoretical and methodological trends such as cultural theory, poetics of knowledge, media theory, trauma studies, and others
- deconstruction and resistance today
- deconstruction and aesthetic theory
- deconstruction and the work of art
- the fate of close reading
- ethical writing
- the problem of inheritance and tradition
- deconstruction in America / America in deconstruction
- a Europe to come
