Gilles Deleuze


Saturday 25th Feb 2-5pm

Occupy LSX / School of Ideas
Featherstone Rd

An afternoon of talks, about the relevance of Deleuze and Guattari’s ideas to Occupy. 

Deleuze and Guattari’s writings are considered, by political activists, philosophers, artists and writers to provide the most insightful analysis of the crisis we face today.  It is claimed that the rhizomic, nomadic and creative nature of Occupy is inherently DeleuzeoGuattarian. This afternoon of talks tests these claims and asks; does Deleuze and Guattari’s conceptual apparatus scythe right through to the heart of capitalist production: do they provide vitalist, non-paranoid, (entirely pragmatic) systems of thought around which both a world can be torn down and a new one built? 

How it feels to be free: becoming-together with Deleuze & Guattari  
Jeremy Gilbert, Reader at the University of East London.

Minor Politics, Activism, and Occupy 
Nick Thoburn, Lecturer in Sociology: University of Manchester.

Worldwide, Occupy will not publish a solidified list of aims or a manifesto, preferring to speak of a thousand struggles, a thousand acts of resistance spoken though thousands of voices. Is this the same as Deleuze and Guattari’s A Thousand Plateaus? 
Andrew Conio, Senior Lecturer University of Wolverhampton, Associate Lecturer Chelsea School of Art.

International Conference

From Structure to Rhizome: Transdisciplinarity in French Thought, 1945 to the Present – Histories, concepts, constructions

Cine Lumière, The French Institute
17 Queensberry Place, London, SW7 2DT
tel. 020 7073 1350

Friday 16 & Saturday 17 April 2010

In the final decades of the twentieth century, the great books of postwar French theory transformed study in the humanities in the Anglophone world. These texts were all, in one way or another, transdisciplinary in character.

Yet their reception has primarily taken place in an array of specific disciplinary contexts, isolated from a broader understanding of the intellectual dynamics, forms, significance and innovative potential of their transdisciplinarity itself. This conference aims to address this situation. Each speaker will reflect on the transdisciplinary functioning of a single concept in French thought since 1945, with respect to a founding text, a particular thinker or a school of thought.
