General Organology

The Co-individuation of Minds, Bodies, Social Organisations and Technº

20th-22nd November 2014

International Conference

University of Kent

General organology proposes to rethink the relations between biological organs, technical organs and social organisations and how all of these individuate in the socius. General organology draws from the original practice of organology in musicology, which is the study of the history of musical instruments, their practices and their social roles in all civilizations and historical periods. Yet general organology is not limited to the study of musical instruments but it takes into account all technical instruments and their effects on biological and social organs.

In addition to Marianne Wolf, Maurizio Lazzarato and Bernard Stiegler, other renowned academics will present on the project of general organology: Cornelius Borck (Lübeck), Antoinette Rouvroy (FNRS and Namur), Francesco Vitale (Salerno), John Mowitt (Leeds), Michael Lewis (UWE), Ian James (Cambridge), Martin Crowley (Cambridge), Ben Roberts (Bradford), Patrick Crogan (UWE), Yuk Hui (Leuphana), Pieter Lemmens (Radboud University of Nijmegen), and many others.
