Problems for Derrida archive?

Filed under: Uncategorized — ubikcan @ 11:15 pm


News breaks (practically on the eve of the publication of a piece of mine, in german, on archives and Derrida, and on the Derrida archive at UCI) that Derrida’s family is being sued by the university of california over the archive. UCI had expected the remaining papers to join what has been accumulated here, while Derrida’s heirs wish to honor his wish to establish an archive in france. in 2004, Derrida had sent a letter to the UCI chancellor stating that (for reasons I’d rather not go into publicly – suffice it to say they were personal) he would withdraw his support for the archive at UCI. there were many exchanges, but his death in the fall of that year made it impossible to work out just where things stood.
