Deleuze and the Humanities – A One Day Symposium
The institutionalization of Deleuze within certain sectors of the academy, and the consequent authorial branding of Deleuze and Deleuze and Guattari within a burgeoning academic marketplace are developments clearly worth our critical attention. These developments imply, or bring into focus, a range of related issues or problems for scholars working in the humanities. For those scholars who have not yet encountered Deleuze’s work, or those perhaps provoked or increasingly curious about how a Deleuzian metalanguage is being translated and used in their scholarly disciplines and forms of practice, the most immediate question may simply be; ‘why Deleuze’?
This one day symposium will bring together a range of Deleuze scholars to talk about the broad significance of his work from a variety of perspectives; feminism, performance studies, aesthetics, philosophy, politics, film studies, anthropology and cultural theory.
