CFP: Deleuze & Activism Conference


12 – 13 November, 2009

Centre for Critical and Cultural Theory in cooperation with the Culture, Imagination and Practice Research Group, School of Social Sciences, Cardiff University

When Deleuze and Guattari wrote Anti-Oedipus they hoped it would be a resource to arms for dissidents and political activists. Rather than set out a program of change, they tried to isolate the political, cultural and economic factors that inhibit change. In so doing they created a work that was instantly recognised as a philosophical watershed. It changed the landscape of political theory in a single sweep. Subsequent works developed this analysis further, creating a formidable armoury of critical tools with which to face a world increasingly indifferent to philosophy. This conference seeks to examine the Deleuzian legacy from the point of view of radical politics. It seeks to analyse both what he and Guattari wrote on the subject and more particularly to see what their writings enable us to say now.

We welcome presentations which connect Deleuze’s (and Guattari) works with the broad theme of activism and radical politics, focusing on contemporary social and political issues. The conference invites 20 minute papers. Send 200-250 word proposals by June 15th to:

Paul Patton (UNSW); Ian Buchanan (Cardiff University); Jeremy Gilbert (University of East London); Nathan Widder (University of London); Brad Evans (University of Leeds); Stepvhen Shukaitis (University of Essex); Offer Parchev (Haifa University); Dimitris Papadopoulos (Cardiff University); Maria Puig de la Bellacasa (Cardiff University); Simone Bignall (University of South Australia); Keir Milburn (University of Leeds); Christian Kerslake (Middlesex University); Marcelo Svirsky (Cardiff University)
