We hope to see you all at both events! ------------ Nervous Hieroglyphics: Mallarmé, Wagner, and the Syntax of Affect in Derrida’s L’Écriture et le théâtre Seminar by Andrew Kingston In the first half of his 1968-69 seminar, L’Écriture et le théâtre: Mallarmé/Artaud, Jacques Derrida analyzes the poet Stéphane Mallarmé’s complex engagement with the music drama of Richard Wagner. At stake in Derrida’s text are the aesthetic consequences of a peculiarly nineteenth-century endeavor—that of theoretically grounding relationships between different forms of art—for which Mallarmé and Wagner are often seen to represent two opposing schools of thought. This talk will focus on the ways in which, throughout this seminar, Derrida complicates Mallarmé’s implicit critiques of Wagner with regard to notions of “music,” dance, and effective expression, which then resonate within Derrida’s own conception of writing, displacing the operatic operations that are always at work in the theater of the signifier. + Callaway N106 Campus Events
