Work on Husserl Subseries 1.3. 1953-1957

Subseries Scope and Content Summary

This subseries contains all the notes and drafts pertaining to Derrida's intensive study of Husserl while he was a student. Much of the material is undated and probably was created during Derrida's periods of intensive research on Husserl at Louvain in 1953-1954 and at Harvard University in 1956-1957. The majority of the items are reading notes. While none of the material has been published, the work represents the background research to both Le problème de la genèse dans la philosophie de Husserl and the introduction to Derrida's French translation of Husserl's Origin of Geometry. Although some of this material chronologically overlaps with that in subseries 1.2, its original order has been maintained because it represents Derrida's own organization.

Teaching and seminars Series 2. 1959-1995

Physical Description: 8.3 Linear Feet
Physical Description: no content

Series Scope and Content Summary

This series, representing materials related to Derrida's work as a teacher, begins with his earliest teaching at Le Mans in 1959 and continues up to his most recent seminars in L'Ecole des hautes Etudes en Sciences sociales (EHESS) and the University of California, Irvine (UCI). The series documents almost every seminar that Derrida has ever taught. In the majority of cases, the seminar is fully written out (in either manuscript or typescript) and is supplemented with a variety of notes and photocopies. Throughout this description the term séance is used to denote individual course sessions of a seminar. This series is arranged chronologically, beginning with several short, undated seminars that are probably from Derrida's first years of teaching. Folder dates indicate the year in which a seminar was given, but within the folder seminar material may precede or post-date the year of the seminar.
Original page groupings have been indicated in notes within some folders when that grouping wasn't already apparent, and when Derrida made an effort to single out the pages as a group by, for example, clipping them together or wrapping a page around the group. Where there are clearly distinct versions of a seminar or when there are virtually identical copies of seminar materials, these materials have been so noted. Any seminar notes or accompanying texts typically are housed either in a folder preceding the rest of the seminar material, or with the first copy of the seminar. Where there are several copies of a seminar, the first copy is usually more marked and obviously used. For seminars given during more than one year, material is separated chronologically whenever possible; when that distinction could not be clearly made, all material is placed under one date with a note of reference at the other date. The locations where seminars were given are noted below when they are known for certain; more often, the schools at which Derrida taught during the seminar year are given. Typically, Derrida has taught at the Ecole normale supérieur (ENS) and at EHESS in winter, at Yale University and at Johns Hopkins University in the fall, and at the UCI in the spring.
A name and subject index is also available.

Physical Description: 33.3 Linear Feet
Physical Description: no content

Series Scope and Content Summary

This series consists of all material related to Derrida's published work. By far the largest series in the collection, it contains drafts, notes, photocopies, proofs, and offprints covering almost every work that Derrida has published. It also contains material for interviews, conferences, international colloquiua, and exhibits, much of which is related to Derrida's published work. Since much of the material lacks a specific date, and since titles often represent several years of work (for example, a draft, a few conference versions, proofs, and an offprint), the series is arranged alphabetically by published title. For the same reasons, folders in this series do not contain inclusive dates.
Original page groupings have been indicated in notes within some folders when that grouping wasn't already apparent and when Derrida made an effort to single out the pages as a group by, for example, clipping them together or wrapping a page around the group. Versions of a text are noted when distinguishable; however, the version numbers do not necessarily indicate the chronological progression of a text. In some instances a chronology was impossible to discern.
Interviews explicitly related to a publication title are filed under the title of the publication; all other interviews are filed as such. Texts with no definite title and that are related to the Group de Recherches sur l'Enseignement philosophique (GREPH) are filed under GREPH; other untitled texts are filed under an appropriate title substitute, such as a conference title. Correspondence related to a title is filed with that title, while correspondence unconnected to any title is filed alphabetically under "Letter to ...." Note that several of the manuscripts have cards inserted with quotations or other text to be added to the manuscript. Derrida marked several of these cards with a symbol, and he also marked the manuscript with the same symbol to indicate where the text on the card belongs in the manuscript.

Audio and video recordings Series 4. 1985-1999

Physical Description: 2.4 Linear Feet
Physical Description: no content

Series Scope and Content Summary

This series contains all the video and audio tapes in the collection. The majority of the tapes are of seminars, but some document conferences, discussions, films and television shows featuring Derrida, and unaired material cut from aired productions. The series has been divided into two subseries.

Access

Access to original audio and video cassettes is restricted; copies are made for researcher use.
 

Audio recordings Subseries 4.1. 1985-1998

Subseries Scope and Content Summary

This subseries contains approximately 230 audio cassettes of Derrida's seminars given in Paris at the Ecole des hautes Etudes et Sciences sociales. Both public seminars and the smaller seminaires restreintes (restricted seminars) for enrolled students are included in the tapes. No cassettes are available for the period from June 1989-November 1996. The majority of the cassettes were recorded by Makoto Asari and given by him to Derrida. Descriptions of seminars are transcribed from the labels of the original cassettes, and no further information is available regarding the titles or topical content of the recorded seminars; some seminar material in Series 2 may correspond to these audio cassette recordings. All audio cassette recordings are in French. The subseries is arranged chronologically.

Access

Use copies of each audio recording must be made prior to researcher use of the recordings. 48 hours advance notice is required in order to create use copies, which will then become a permanent part of the collection. Contact Special Collections and Archives for further information.

Events taped include seminars, conferences and discussions, films and television shows featuring Derrida, and unaired material cut from aired productions. Tapes are in English, French, Japanese, Russian, Greek, Hungarian and German, as well as combinations of these languages. Durations given for some tapes are taken from material accompanying those tapes and have not been confirmed. This subseries is arranged chronologically; several undated video cassettes are arranged first, alphabetically by title.
