Translation and preparation for publication of four volumes of The Seminars of Jacques Derrida. (36 months)

This is a proposal to translate from French four of the first volumes of The Seminars of Jacques Derrida. Each seminar is a course of teaching lectures that Derrida prepared every year on a chosen theme. The lectures are fully written and almost wholly unpublished. They thus represent an inestimable supplement to Derrida's extant oeuvre. The first volume of the French edition of the seminars appeared in 2008 and the English version, prepared by a member of our team, will be published in 2009. The work proposed here is part of the long-term project to translate, soon after they appear, all of the volumes in the series, of which there will be at least forty. The six members of the team assembled for the project all have extensive experience as translators of Derrida and other contemporary French writers. Given its very long-term nature, the project also includes an annual training workshop for younger scholars and graduate students to be conducted by our team members.
