Connect, Continue, Create – Deleuze Camp 4


Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis at the University of Amsterdam

Centre for the Humanities at Utrecht University

Call for Papers

The third annual International Deleuze Studies Conference will explore how the three creative domains of thought – art, science and philosophy – connect, continue and create together.

The visionary quality of the profoundly generous and complex philosophy of Gilles Deleuze may provide new and productive ways of understanding connections, in a world that is increasingly globally linked and technologically mediated.

Central questions addressed at the conference are: in what ways do disciplines meet and interfere with one another?  What kind of methodological and political implications do their dynamic encounters entail?  What are the limits of transdisciplinary connections, relations and fields?

Possible topics for papers may include:

–          Methodological interfaces between science and the Humanities

–          Art as Philosophical Practice

–          Urban planning and architecture

–          Nomadic politics and Social Sustainability

–          Neuroscience and Culture

–          Aesthetics of Life Sciences

–          The Policy-making implications of eco-philosophy and Triple Ecologies

Length of presentations: max. 20 minutes.  Panel proposals are welcome.

Please send your abstract (max. 200 words) and a short bio to before the 1st of March, 2010.  Confirmation of acceptance will be emailed before April 15th, 2010.  Selections will take place on the basis of the number of panel presentations.
