Geography of difference, philosophical winds and intensive encounters in Brazil

Prepared especially for deleuze international this ensemble of articles and interviews introduces to the philosophical production related to Gilles Deleuze in Brazil. In ‘the land of the palm trees’, or Pindorama, as its indigenous inhabitants, the Tupi-Guarani, used to call their country, the reception of Deleuze’s writings started flourishing at the end of the 1960ies. Thanks to the translations of important scholars of Deleuze and Guattari almost all of their works are today available to the Brazilian reader. Beyond this, a considerable variety of books, articles, symposia and, most of all, the widespread activity in philosophy and arts departments of universities located between the Amazon and Paraná rivers inspire the still increasing interest in the transformational potential of the concepts created by these French thinkers. The articles here assembled were authored by major exponents of the reception and reflection about Deleuze’s philosophy in Brazil: Roberto Machado, Luiz Orlandi and Peter Pál Pelbart.

CfP: Deleuze Studies in Asia (2015)

The Third International Deleuze Studies in Asia Conference ( will be held at the Manipal Centre for Philosophy and Humanities, Manipal University, India from June 5 to June 7, 2015. The Third International Deleuze Camp in Asia will be organised as part of the conference in the same venue from May 29 to June 2, 2015.

The theme of this conference “Inter-national, Inter-connection, Inter-operativity” points to three key problems of our age: the interaction between nations, between people and machines, and between differently constituted systems. It invites us to think about the different ways in which Deleuze and Guattari’s thought enables us to conceptualise the present world, paying particular attention to the powerful North/South and East/West segmentations that operate today, as well as the transversal and rhizomatic lines that pass through, between and around them. Recognising that there is no single way of answering these problematics, the conference invites participants to consider a global range of topics distributed over a wide and aberrant epistemic territory of science, metaphysics, politics, art, history, cinema, literature, culture, race, ethnicity and so on. This conference aims to bring together a set of professional scholars and amateur aspirants to reflect upon these areas with specific focus on the possibilities, challenges, difficulties and connections raised by them.
