Event-Artifactualities: Derrida and the Hauntology of Media
October 16 4:00pm – 8:00pm EDT 239 Greene Street, Floor 8
Jacques Derrida was the most brilliant and influential philosopher of media of our time. He had an abiding engagement with the temporalities, spatialities and inscriptions of the mediatic from his book on Husserl’s phonology, through his subsequent development of the following themes and concepts that increasingly re-orient our understanding of semiosis, communication/excommunication and interfacing/defacing: arche-writing, the trace, iterability, parricidal mimesis, phonocentrism, the dangerous supplement, the pharmacology of writing, dissemination, the play of repetition, Freud’s magic writing pad, otiology, on touching, atomic missives and missiles, the shibboleth, inspectacularity, echography, secrecy, the alibi the maddened subjectile, the ethnography of paper, spectrality, the pathogenic archive, the event, and autoimmunity among many others. Co-sponsored by the NYU Department of Media, Culture, and Communication; and the NYU Department of English.
