25 - 27 June 2018 | Convention Center, University of Campinas, Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil


The International Deleuze Studies Conference had its first version in 2008 at the Centre for literary studies, Cardiff University, Wales, where Professor Ian Buchanan, the creator of the conference, used to work. Shortly after, the international newsletter Deleuze Studies was launched, published by Edinburgh University Press, of great prestige, which gathers, in English language, a significant set of thoughts and new theorizations and methodological practices at work with the concepts of Deleuze, Guattari and other philosophers of difference. From the year 2017, the newsletter will change its name to Deleuze and Guattari Studies, which will also require the name change of the international conference that has been associated to the newsletter since 2013.

The International Deleuze Studies Conferences have already happened in Europe, Canada, and the USA. There are several editions of another conference in China and other neighboring countries. In 2018, it will be first time that it will happen in Latin America.

1a - The First International Deleuze Studies Conference (Cardiff, Wales/UK) – 2008


The general objective of the Deleuze and Guattari Studies Conference is to bring together specialists from different areas of academic and non-academic knowledge to discuss, in depth, some concepts and methodologies that are stemmed from the works of Gilles Deleuze, individually and, over the years, with growing interest in the interface with other philosophers, especially Felix Guattari. The interchange between experts from different countries with graduate students, in an action of continuous formation, and the discussion of emerging perspectives in an interdisciplinary context are also evident marks of the event. Last but not least, the meeting allows the discussion of the relevance and meaning of the concepts of the philosophical field with varied features of contemporary societies.

by Luiz Benedicto Lacerda Orlandi

Humans, complex and unpredictable inhabitants of planet Earth, have always carried in their entrails, in their encounters with the matter and other living beings, a question attached to the movements of their bodies and emotions. It is a simple question, surely already performing in the instincts of other living beings in this same and tortuous territory: what and how to do to explore and recreate conditions of life? Whether virus, molecule, insect, bush, animal or person, it is on each of them that a vital, vast and intricate questioning is imposed. This questioning is variedly reiterated in the nomadisms or whereabouts of all these living beings, obliging each one to rearrange in the ambiance of their milieu and unravel the most disparate signs of a chaotic of perceptions.

It is known that certain strata of humans, through resumptions of learnings imposed to them, or searched by them, have taken their survival techniques to considerable levels. However, a certain blindness related not only to their vital questioning but also to the other living things was created in each being. First, what happened to the benefits reached at each level of creation and production between the beings? These benefits had their distribution submitted to decisions and indecisions of ruling elites throughout the histories of each living lineage. Various procedures of domination and exploitation, were finally absorbed, improved transfigured into a capitalist axiomatic controlled by human sectors. It is an axiomatic expert in draining lives, whatever it is, even when it operates in some sectors of human health care. Expert in seizing means of creation and production. Expert in dipping the most varied powers in the viscosity of their profitable operational fields, whether in soccer or coups (parliamentary, judicial etc).

It is an appropriation able to mesh the beings in the own axioms produced by it. It occurs to such an extent that, captured by vast nets fluxes animated by determined axiomatic of this appropriation, the human beings, as if drugged, fall into a sad and ignorant indifference to something that, now, seems to be something out of this world, those signs of a childhood open to natural and historic questionings of its own vitality. This axiomatic is capable of anything, as long as it is profitable. Wars, slaveries, servitudes, work exploitation, moves of financial capital end up yielding surplus of good lives for some beings and also for some animals of top quality category. And the other beings, even humans? They are the rest, the part of the minorities, the minorities that compose the majority, the minorities more and more considered like rest, rest to be discarded in the perspective of its utility like scrap.

Therefore, it is clear and natural that life germinates some resistance from the side of people under threat of scrapping. For example, the contemporary fights for a better income distributions are vitally worthy as well as the fights for improvements of the public service provided. However, even when these fights occur without a direct connection with movements and manifestations that give resonance to the problems lived by Black People, by Women, by Indians, by Landless Rural Workers, by Homeless, by People Without Fear, by Students, by other living beings, finally, by the planet etc, even so, even if they are placid and peaceful fights, what becomes evident, alongside the coup in progress in Brazil, is a reactionary disrespect endowed with a shamed and ridiculous archaism.

Not only one of the strongest archaism as a means of a communication that became suspicious. A decrepit archaism of the Brazilian portion submerged in the contemporary capitalist axiomatic. The living beings in the current Brazil have received a shamed archaism imposed by the salesmen of natural resources, of waters, of minerals, of petroleum…And this is done “at any cost” to the living beings, both in terms of income distribution and quality of life, at any cost to the humanity of caged humans at work or desperate in the unemployment, at any cost to the trees of the forests that are on sale or devastated in favour of pastures for cattle and meat exportation, at any cost to the democracy itself, even though ‘pseudo’ representative, and of which the archaism has appropriated, burying more and more the idea of a representational democracy that, step by step, can be legitimated by a permanent act of being in correspondence with the problems that are being addressed for the so-called represented.

Given this situation and considering our intellectual engagement with the necessity and with our right to think the problems with radicalness, whether in technics, in arts, in sciences or in philosophy, what are the perspectives that we can glimpse at and which of them can we have a thorough examination? Certainly, we are looking for perspectives capable, not of waging a bloody war against this axiomatic, because this axiomatic can gain strength with wars like that, but perspectives that, aware and open to the multiplicities of worlds, can keep us allied with life, considering that this is our only potency of differentiation, our heterogeneous source of power in questioning differently. It is in this that our multifarious and jolly minoritarian desire invigorates.

The potent alliances with life give us a creative joy. The vital and creative intensifications are what we seek to experiment in the encounters with the differences that singularize ourselves. These differences are what give us an extremely and interesting joy, the joy that offers us what to think about. A joy that remains and incites us to preserve and take it even as a criterion for the selection of market offers, secular or religious, these offers that, separating us from the effective questioning of our concrete problems, try to link us to worlds that cultivate unnecessary necessities or paltry lacks. They are complicit offers of the ridiculous archaism of an axiomatic also indifferent to our nomadisms. The fact remains that, even if instigated by micro-revolutions of opening up to new possible worlds, our nomadisms are not isolationist. They operate by experimentations through the intensive encounters, encounters between heterogeneities incited by a reciprocal vitalization.

These are the outlines of the conference that we are linked to, the D&G Studies Conference 2018.

Themes and topics

The 2018 Conference will be the first to articulate, from within its title, the friendship, the encounter of thoughts and affections, the constitution of Deleuze and Guattari's writing, philosophical, aesthetical and political machinery. In this context, we have proposed the theme of the conference, highlighting the contemporaneity and the vitality of the Deleuzian-Guattarian multiplicity in the sociocultural times of resurgence and powerful action of fascisms that we have been facing in different parts of the world: facisms realted to the discriminations of different orders, which aim to subalternize and depotencialize differences; fascisms that resort to universals, to unity and to homogenization as a priority option within a transcendental plan for life; fascisms that subtract the human from one's singular forces.

The theme of the 11th Deleuze and Guattari Conference - 2018 brings together and traverses the encounters between Deleuze and Guattari, Guattari and Brazil, Deleuze and Brazil, and their reverberations.

At the State University of Campinas (Unicamp), the location of the 2018 Conference, there are several research groups that consider the references of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, in the fields of philosophy, arts, education, language and politics. Since 2009, we have been holding the Deleuze Connections Seminars, which will host its seventh edition in 2017.

In Brazil, the thought of Deleuze and Guattari has impacted the field of Education, at least since the 1990s. Although the educational problematics has not been core in his work, one can see a strong concern with the theme traversing the works of Guattari, who mentions it several times.

As just one example, it is interesting to follow the comments he made in one of his trips to Brazil in the early 1980s about the movement of nurseries and alternative schools. In Mille Plateaux, Deleuze and Guattari affirm that the teacher “en-signa”, that is, insert the child into a set of semiotic coordinates that shape their subjectivity. It is possible to notice a growing movement of working with his concepts in the educational field, by different researchers, in distinct ways. Two areas where this movement is clear are the curriculum studies and Philosophy of Education. Concepts like rhizome, chaosmosis, aesthetic paradigm, plane of immanence, minor education, among others, have been mobilized by authors from different parts of the country to think themes within education. More recently, dissertations and theses have leaned toward this production, identifying and analyzing, in general, the increasing deleuze-guattarian production in specialized newsletters from the field of education. In the present political and social context of the country, with the entrenchment of positions, open and veiled confrontations , political fights for the imposition of a single thought or even a non-thought in schools and educational practices, the micropolitics of desire thought by Deleuze and Guattari are urgent war machines and necessary to face up to the advance of fascist positions. Multiplicity and proliferation of thoughts and actions, differentiation against unification.

The program of the event aims at the discussion of the concepts and methodologies extracted from the works of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, especially those thought by the two of them, which have urgent interfaces with the field of education in our days

The international and national guests are renowned scholars for their bibliographic production and their social engagement and, throughout their professional lives, they had their formation and research/teaching participation directly with Gilles Deleuze or Felix Guattari.

There will be a special session for the presentation and discussion of the topicality of the book Micropolitics of desire, co-written by Guattari and Suely Rolnik, whose recognition in the international community is still restrict, despite the significant repercussion in the Brazilian academic setting.
