Performatives after Deconstruction Conference

Keynote speakers:
Professor Drucilla Cornell, University of Cape Town
Professor Werner Hamacher, Goethe Universität, Frankfurt am Main
Professor Nicholas Royle, University of Sussex

Since Derrida, de Man and Miller first read Austen, the encounter between deconstruction and the performative has affected every discipline of the humanities. This conference seeks to understand the current terrain of the performative after deconstruction: its heritage, its operation and its future.
