Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari: Refrains of Freedom

International Conference,
24-26 April, 2015, Panteion University, Athens, Greece.

We invite abstracts for papers and panel discussions on all aspects of Deleuze and Guattari's work, and we particularly welcome contributions attempting to elucidate the meaning of Deleuze and Guattari's claim that "pluralism equals monism" as well as its significance for a number of issues central to their writings.

* What are the implications of this claim for ontology, epistemology, ethics, politics, language and the arts?

* Given that Deleuze is talking about absolute difference (A differs from itself) rather than comparative differenc (A differs from B), can we still speak of subjects and objects and transformative change?

* Deleuze and Guattari's philosophy of difference in the face of multiculturalism, identity politics and cultural traditions.

* Between the fixity of cultural traditions and their nihilist rejection.

* Forcefields and extended spaces

* Repetition as the maker of difference.

* "Autrement qu' être/Autrement qu' autre."

* Memory, heterogeneity, the friend, the one thousand tiny sexes.

* Schizoanalysis.

* "Pluralism equals monism" and literature.

* "Pluralism equals monism" and the arts (visual arts, music, cinema, theater, dance, new and multi-disciplinary art forms, art-science-technology and society in a technological age).

* Pluralism equals monism" and the people to come.
