he first collection to theorise race and racism through the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze
In this volume, an international and multidisciplinary team of scholars inaugurates the Deleuzian study of race through a wide-ranging and evocative array of case studies.
Deleuze and Guattari provided new concepts of how humans are differentiated, through processes of state formation, capitalism, madness and desire. While sexual difference has received much attention in Deleuze studies, racial difference is a thornier problematic. As this collection of essays shows, Deleuze and Guattari had extremely original things to say about race, and the politics of phenotype and origin is never far from any engaged consideration of how the world works.
Key Features
Unpacks the implicit and explicit references to race across Deleuze’s body of work, with a special focus on the Capitalism and Schizophrenia works written with Guattari
Couples Deleuze with other theorists of race, such as Foucault, Butler and Gilroy
Draws examples from the arts, current affairs and history
Contributors include Claire Colebrook, John E. Drabinski, Ian Buchanan and Laura U. Marks
