Derrida and religion

posted by Charles Gelman

On March 26-27 Harvard University will host “Derrida and Religion,” an interdisciplinary conference addressing Derrida’s various engagements with the religious, through such themes as sacrifice, naming, radical alterity, and the messianic. As the post-modern and the post-secular appear increasingly imbricated, it seems fair to say that the themes to be taken up in this forum form, in large part, the imminent horizon of contemporary philosophy.

The conference will feature presentations from Hent de Vries, Peter Gordon, Joseph Cohen, Sarah Hammerschlag, Richard Kearney, Edward Baring, John Caputo, Martin Hägglund, and Amy Hollywood.
