Further details on UCD

Next week the events at UCD take place. On Wednesday the 4th of April I’ll be giving a lecture on “Deleuze and the Machine in Schizophrenic Art”; this will take place in the School of English at 4pm. On the following day, I’ll be running a workshop on key concepts in Deleuze and Guattari, from 10am ’til 5pm. This session is aimed at non-philosophers who are using, or who are considering using Deleuze in their own work. Which of Deleuze’s concepts are best suited to the varied tasks and sub-fields of criticism?

During the workshop we’ll be working initially on basic concepts, and then on some examples of their application in literary criticism, film studies, queer theory, and archival work. By focusing on the methodological problems specific to these disciplines, we should be able to identify which of Deleuze’s concepts are most appropriate to each discipline; we should also be able to discard those concepts which are less suited to the work of criticism.
