Special Topics in Cultural and Visual Studies: Deleuze’s Aesthetics
In this doctoral seminar we will perform a close reading of Deleuze's late work on aesthetics, focusing on his relevance to cultural & visual studies by way of painting, cinema, photography, the diagram, & the Baroque. Additional themes will include minor literature, machines, & the distinction between the digital & the analogue. Additional readings will be drawn from Elizabeth Grosz, as well as three of Deleuze's peers & interlocutors (&, at times, fierce critics) in France, Michel Henry, Alain Badiou, & François Laruelle.
