Deleuze Reading Group

This London based Deleuze reading group will discuss a selection of essays from Gilles Deleuze’s late work Essays Critical and Clinical.

Focussing on this collection of essays, this reading group aims to bring together researchers interested in Deleuze’s work with a view to better understanding his continued influence across disciplines. 

Prior knowledge of Deleuze’s work is not necessary as meetings will aim to work through Deleuze’s central ideas.  Discussing some of his most accessible works, we will steadily familiarize ourselves with Deleuze’s notoriously complex writing style and attempt to unpick his vast matrix of concepts. 

The group will meet every Thursday from 6-8pm.  The upcoming meetings are listed below.

Thursday 21st July – OU, Camden
Thursday 28th July – Goldsmiths, Richard Hoggart Building (RHB) room 220
Thursday 4th August – SOAS, GSG03 (53 Gordon Square)

The boundaries of childhood and youth can be flexibly interpreted. By showcasing research from across disciplines, time and space, we hope to facilitate a discussion of both the challenges and possibilities or research on childhood and youth.

Proposals welcomed for papers of 20 minutes and the submission deadline is Friday 12 August. Please send an abstract of around 300 words, along with brief biographical details to You will be notified at the beginning of September.
