Speaker information

Professor Mairéad Hanrahan, UCL French

Deconstruction is now over 40 years old but although the term has passed into common parlance, no consensus has yet emerged about what it means or seeks to do. Many in various disciplines extol it as one of the most significant intellectual breakthroughs ever; others dismiss it as anti-scientific obscurantism. This lecture attempts to explain why, after such a long time - an eternity in academic terms - deconstruction can still arouse such passionate disagreements.
