    Snail Conversions: Derrida's Turns with Ponge.Elissa Marder - 2015 - Oxford Literary Review 37 (2):181-196.
    Conversion is at work in prayer, promise, psychoanalysis and poetry. This paper begins by turning around Jacques Derrida's discussion of the importance of ‘anasemic conversion’ in the work of Nicolas Abraham and turns into a reading of the aneconomic effects of the silvery trail deposited by the eponymous snails in Francis Ponge's prose poem ‘Escargots’. Anasemic conversion wrests language from meaning and returns it to its material, non-mattering, primal matter. Made of slimy spit, the snail's trail is not a product (...)

    Derrida's Matrix: The Births of Deconstruction.Elissa Marder - 2018 - Oxford Literary Review 40 (1):1-19.
    Many of Derrida's formative texts from 1967 about writing, the trace, supplementarity, death, and différance feature striking liminal references to the figure of the mother and are implicitly haunted by the question of birth. In a pivotal passage of De la grammatologie, Derrida links the very futurity of deconstruction to the emergence of ‘a reading discipline to be born’. In this essay, I show that through his readings of the ‘birth of language’ in Lévi-Strauss and Rousseau, Derrida implicitly invites us (...)

    Force of Love.Elissa Marder - 2018 - Oxford Literary Review 40 (2):206-220.
    Despite the enormous changes in feminism, philosophy and literary theory since 1975, the year in which Hélène Cixous first wrote the small manifesto by which she remains best known, ‘The Laugh of the Medusa’ continues to find generations of new readers who, upon discovering it, often declare their passionate love for it. This essay explores the relation between the enduring love that this text continues to inspire and the deconstruction of love that is inscribed within it. Irreverently and playfully drawing (...)

    Freud's Fictions: Fixation, Femininity, Photography.Elissa Marder - 2017 - Paragraph 40 (3):349-367.
    This article takes off from Freud's literary use of the term ‘fixation’ to explore how female sexuality both establishes the universal foundations of Freud's metapsychology and is excluded from it via a reading of one Freud's strangest and most provocative case presentations. Like a primal word, fixation operates in contradictory fashion: it is associated both with regression and futurity, petrified immobility and contingency. Fixation is Freud's name both for the primal origin of sexuality and the very word for what shuts (...)

    Disarticulated Voices: Feminism and Philomela.Elissa Marder - 1992 - Hypatia 7 (2):148 - 166.
    By juxtaposing readings of selected feminist critics with a reading of Ovid's account of Philomela's rape and silencing, this essay interrogates the rhetorical, political, and epistemological implications of the feminist "we." As a political intervention that comes into being as a response to women's oppression, feminism must posit a collective "we." But this feminist "we" is best understood as an impersonal, performative pronoun whose political force is not derived from a knowable referent.

    Real Dreams.Elissa Marder - 2013 - Southern Journal of Philosophy 51 (S1):196-213.
    This paper suggests that The Interpretation of Dreams contains some of Freud's most provocative, far-reaching, and powerful psychoanalytic insights regarding futurity, intersubjective communication, and the relationship between the dream, the dreamer, and the world. By focusing on the specific status and function of the dream (as opposed to all other psychic actions), this paper explores how and why the singular language of dreams—and the very possibility of dream interpretation—provide a specifically psychoanalytic model of translation. The essay examines the specific status (...)

    The Elephant and the Scaffold: Response to Kelly Oliver.Elissa Marder - 2012 - Southern Journal of Philosophy 50 (s1):95-106.
    This paper responds to Kelly Oliver's “See Topsy ‘Ride the Lightning’: The Scopic Machinery of Death” by questioning the presuppositions and implications of her discussion of the spectacle of elephant executions and their relation to Derrida's writings about animals and the death penalty. This paper proposes to reframe the approach to Derrida's reflections on the death penalty and its problematic relation to the category of the human by focusing on the double function of the concept of the scaffold in his (...)
