Mr Russell Daylight

I am a final-year doctoral student at Macquarie University in Sydney. My thesis is titled "Communication and Structure: Derrida on Saussure." It considers Jacques Derrida's equivocal engagement with Ferdinand de Saussure and linguistics generally. I have presented papers on this topic and more generally on language, structuralism, democracy, and society.
