Call for Papers: Special issue of Derrida Today on "Traces of Judaism in Derrida"

Call for papers: Derrida Today

Special issue on: "Traces of Judaism in Derrida"

Faced with numerous references to themes from Jewish thought, Jewish thinkers, and biblical narratives throughout Derrida's writings, one finds it impossible to disregard the profound influence of the Jewish tradition on his work. Although it is widely known that Derrida was born in Algeria into a Sephardic Jewish family and suffered from anti-Semitic violence during his childhood, there has yet been no satisfactory inquiry into the structural connections between this aspect of his autobiography and his philosophical work. Often pushed to the margins of the literature on Derrida, these topics need to be fully explored, elaborated and, if possible, made intelligible. This special issue of Derrida Today therefore welcomes papers that try to illuminate all aspects of Derrida's thought from the perspective of its indebtedness to the Jewish tradition.
