Volcanic Lines: Deleuzian Research Group


I organised this group in collaboration with Dr Matt Lee.  We met regularly at the University of Greenwich for workshops and conferences, and posted reports and conclusions online. The edited collection Thinking Between Deleuze and Kant arose from these activities.

Our two international conferences featured presentations from those working within and across different disciplines and attracted delegates from across the UK and abroad. Our one day workshops, evening workshops and colloquia attracted academics and postgraduate students from several universities and independent scholars.  They had a flexible format with presentations but also much open discussion and close examination of texts. 

Here is a list of the events we organised. At the bottom of the page you will find the research group's statement of aims and objectives and further details of these events along with detailed reports of many of our discussions and findings.
