ANT 394M • Deleuze
1:00 PM-4:00 PM
This is a reading seminar on the theories of Giles Deleuze and the ways they have been put into practice in new forms of cultural critique. Key concerns will be concepts of affect, force, rhizomatic structures, the assemblage, affinities, post-humanist theories of the subject and power, and emergences of becomings.
