Auto-co-immunity: Ecological Thought Of Mourning / Derrida Today Conference 2022

After these three years I can conclude that: The labor of mourning is also the ecology of affect, it is friendship, it is responsibility, it is freedom, it is ethics, it is care, it is making a community beyond the borders of the one who is already dead, the death of each one; it is embracing the earth in which we bury our dead. Give thanks, welcome those who are now only in memory and those who will join in the other labor of mourning that is to come. Embrace the event of death with unconditional hospitality. Receive what death gives us or we give to death.
