With his work spanning over dozens of books, hundreds of articles and numerous collaborations with artists, Jean-Luc Nancy is one of France’s most active living philosophers. His thinking addresses a broad range of issues: from politics and community, the arts and the body, to Christian theology and even theoretical cosmology. This project aims to take stock of Nancy’s work and influence in terms of specific contemporary challenges, whether these are intellectual, cultural or religious. To that end, we are gathering prominent scholars of his work, together with postgraduate students, artists and Nancy himself, for a three-day conference in Oxford.
