Re-reading Derrida: Perspectives on Mourning and its Hospitalities, edited by Tony Thwaites and Judith Seaboyer, is a uniquely collaborative exploration of the legacies of Jacques Derrida. Scholars from a wide variety of fields respond to his work by addressing such issues as the politics of the memorial, poetry, trauma, film, neoliberalism, the novel, and psychoanalysis--and then, in the processes of revision, they respond to each other.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Refusing to mourn, Miller and Attridge engage Derrida's refusing to mourn in a volume of clear-eyed interdisciplinary explorations on hospitality that absolute mourning and posthumous infidelity invite. Seven scholars and the editors answer the invitation with expansive essays that address one another as they give their take on legacies, memorials, crypts, and elegies in Beirut and New Orleans, in Wordsworth and Joyce, in Abraham and Torok, in film and geopolitics, in trauma and community. Each takes up in one nonsynonymy or other the spacing auto-immunity future of that infidelity or absolute. -- John P. Leavey, University of Florida
Thwaites and Seaboyer have succeeded in assembling a network of fascinating, at times exhilarating, readings of Derrida's `later' reflections on mourning, death and hospitality. Suggestive insights and curious correspondences abound across a wide range of discussion topics (from Levinas to Lebanon, New Orleans to neoliberalism and beyond) in a book that shows that deconstruction matters, precisely because things other than deconstruction matter. For a careful and creative response to Derrida's work, look no further than Re-reading Derrida. -- Niall Lucy, Curtin University, author of A DERRIDA DICTIONARY
