Elinore Darzi is a PhD student in the Department of French and Italian at Emory University. Her research interests focus primarily on ethics, aesthetics, psychoanalysis and contemporary French thought, particularly that of Jean-François Lyotard, Simone Weil, Emmanuel Levinas and Jacques Derrida.
Lyotard’s thought as it appears in Le Différend describes a linguistic state that evades speech, and the ways in which justice could be done to it, or not. Bearing witness to unpronounceable utterances brings about the idea of faith.
The Political Theology Network seeks proposals for its next series of essays on Critical Theory for Political Theology 2.0 from the fields of feminist theory, queer theory, decolonial studies, Black studies, or Indigenous studies.
