Communication and Mourning

Two articles in the recent literature: “Remembrance of the Future”: Derrida on Mourning, by Joan Kirkby, in SOCIAL SEMIOTICS (Volume 16, Number 3, September 2006) which is devoted entirely to Derrida. And in CONTINUUM: JOURNAL OF MEDIA & CULTURAL STUDIES (Volume 20, Number 3, September 2006) Adi Drori-Avraham authors September 11th and the Mourning After: Media Narrating Grief. Just for fun, I checked the references of each to find they have only one in common: Freud’s On Metapsychology, Volume II of The Theory of Psychoanalysis, which includes “On Mourning and Melancholia.”
