Gilles Deleuze

DELEUZIAN POLITICS?

Issue 68 of New Formations: A journal of culture / theory / politics

Guest Editors Jeremy Gilbert and Chrysanthi Nigianni 

New Formations 68 reflects on the turn to Deleuze in the English-speaking world (looking in particular, but not exclusively, at his work with Félix Guattari). The essays in this volume represent a range of work that demonstrates, and occasionally questions, the usefulness of Deleuzian ideas for addressing key cultural theoretical questions in novel and politically productive ways, addressing themes ranging from sexual politics through the ethics of vitalism to ideas of  political militancy.  It includes:

• Major new essays by three leading exponents of Deleuze’s work in English: Rosi Braidotti, Claire Colebrook and Nicholas Thoburn

•The first English translation of the work of Véronique Bergen, author of L’Ontologie de Gilles Deleuze (2001) and Résistances Philosophiques (2009)

•An impassioned round-table discussion by four leading commentators on Deleuze’s work: Éric Alliez, Peter Hallward, Claire Colebrook and Nicholas Thoburn

•An extensive critical review of current Deleuzian political and cultural theory

•Ground-breaking essays by Jorge Camacho, Patricia MacCormack and Chrysanthi Ngianni
