The work of the French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy spans across dozens of books and hundreds of articles, addressing virtually every possible topic of philosophical interest as well as the major figures of the modern intellectual tradition. This interdisciplinary conference aims to provide a platform to take stock of this ever-growing body of work, reflecting on its significance in terms of how it allows us to bring into view or address certain contemporary challenges, whether these are intellectual, cultural, political or religious. We hope to facilitate a fruitful exchange of current research as well as providing an opportunity for both established and aspiring scholars of Nancy’s thought to meet one another.
