A panel discussion with Gayatri Spivak and invited guests

Event Location: Teatro, Italian Academy for Advanced Studies

RSVP at www.maisonfrançaise.org.

In this panel discussion, speakers reflect on the importance of Jacques Derrida’s book Of Grammatology in their life and work: Benjamin Conisbee Baer (Princeton University); Eduardo Cadava (Princeton University); Mireille Calle-Gruber (Sorbonne Nouvelle — Paris 3); Peggy Kamuf (University of Southern California); Avital Ronell (NYU); and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak (Columbia University).

Including a piano performance by Yohann Ripert.

This fortieth-anniversary edition of Jacques Derrida’s influential book, which Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak retranslates with greater awareness of Derrida’s legacy, also includes a new Afterword by her which supplements the original Translator’s Preface. Judith Butler has added an introduction and all references have been updated. This new release of Of Grammatology is a milestone in the history of an indispensable work of contemporary critical philosophy.

Co-sponsors include the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society, Columbia Maison Française, and Columbia Global Centers.
