A Dialectical Thinking in the Humanities Event on Derrida’s Death Penalty Seminar.
Kir Kuiken is Associate Professor of English at SUNY-Albany. A former student of Derrida’s at UC-Irvine, Kuiken has published several articles on Derrida and and has been collaborating in the prestigious Seminars of Jacques Derrida series. His recent book Imagined Sovereignties (2014) explores the connection between the aesthetic imagination and the production of modern sovereignty in British romanticism, making crucial reference to Derrida’s recently published seminar The Beast and the Sovereign.
This event is co-sponsored by the Mahindra Humanities Center.
