To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Derrida’s seminal Of Grammatology, The Westminster Law & Theory Lab is organising a dedicated reading of the work. In ten weekly sessions starting 11 October, his notions of deconstruction, différance, trace, supplement and metaphor that transformed not only philosophical discourse - but the whole landscape of humanities - will be explored. This is an intermediate/advanced level course and active participation is desired.
Convenor: Dr Georgios Tsagdis, Fellow of The Westminster Law & Theory Lab.
Georgios Tsagdis works at theoretical and disciplinary intersections. His PhD The Archeology of Nothing, a project of fundamental ontology, is to be published with Edinburgh University Press. His new project focuses on the ontology of matter from Plato to New Materialisms.
Cost: Free to University of Westminster Staff and Students, otherwise £120 for the ten sessions.
