The 12th annual Deleuze & Guattari Studies academic camp and conference will be held at Royal Holloway, University of London.
The camp will take place from Monday to Friday, 1-5 July 2019
The conference will take place from Monday to Wednesday, 8-10 July 2019
The conference theme is ‘From Sense to Machinic Becoming’. The year of the conference marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of Deleuze’s The Logic of Sense, of Guattari writing his review of Deleuze’s work, ‘Machine and Structure’, and of the pair’s first face-to-face meeting. The conference theme aims to capture this important point of transition that sees in particular the close of Deleuze’s earlier solo career and the beginning of Deleuze and Guattari’s collaboration that not only sees their break with structuralism and psychoanalysis but their explorations of whole new areas of aesthetics, ethics, politics, science, and more. We seek contributions that examine not only the break that occurs with the new areas and terminology that Deleuze and Guattari, separately and in collaboration, introduce and explore, but also what continues from their earlier works. Nonetheless, the conference is open to high quality scholarship on all aspects of Deleuze and Guattari’s work, as well as scholarship that draws on Deleuze and Guattari, from the whole range of disciplines that they have influenced, and we are open to all proposals that can engage the conference delegates and add to the event.
