>Defined as a form of paramnesia, deja vu is a unique sensation of the
>already known; a moment determined at once by both remembrance and
>forgetting. Originating in the nineteenth century, the concept resonates
>with the philosophical treatment of memory by such notable thinkers as
>Nietzsche, Freud, Walter Benjamin and Henri Bergson. More recently, from
>the perspective of late capitalism, postmodern theory has examined the
>waning of historicity and the emergence of a permanent present under
>globalisation. Other branches of thought have also considered the
>development of new media technologies and the disorientation of
>information overload in real time.
>
>This volume offers a timely opportunity to revisit the past, to collapse
>past and present, and to reconsider our responses.
>
>antiTHESIS invites papers which theorise, contemplate or analyse dj
