Performatives after Deconstruction Conference
|Date:||01 March 2010|
29-30 June 2010
Since Derrida, de Man and Miller first read Austin, the encounter between deconstruction and the performative has affected every discipline of the humanities (politics, law, architecture, literature, philosophy, psychoanalysis, critical theory, cultural studies, etc.). Analyses have multiplied and have put into relief the performative structure of concepts and traditions in a search for their conditions and laws of possibility. This conference seeks to understand the current terrain of the performative after deconstruction: its heritage, its operation and its future. We welcome contributions from any perspective that bring into focus the deconstructive reading of the performative in all its articulated complexity: testimony, oath, conjuration, promise, excuse, confession, disavowal, forgiveness, yes and so on.
