This special issue of Rhizomes calls for essays that explore ways in which
the works of Deleuze or Deleuze and Guattari in collaboration contribute
to the critical analysis, theory, or historical study of film. Of special
interest are essays that utilize or investigate concepts from Deleuze’s
cinema books, although essays that use any aspect of Deleuze’s work are
welcome. We welcome as well papers focused on significant responses to
Deleuze’s work on cinema (by Zizek or Badiou, for example) or ones that
connect Deleuzian concepts to other important thinkers in ways that bear
on how we see film. Other possibilities include essays that respond to the
work of prominent Deleuzian theorists who have recently published
overviews of his work on film, including Claire Colebrook and Ronald
Bogue. Overall, we seek essays that challenge not only the established
approaches to cinema studies but also those that propose new and even
radical readings of Deleuzian concepts regarding film. Completed essays
should be submitted by April 15, 2008; abstracts and inquiries well prior
to this date. Send submissions to Dyrk Ashton, Department of Theatre and
Film, Mail Stop #611, The University of Toledo, Toledo, Ohio 43606 or to Don Callen, Department of Philosophy, Bowling
Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio 43403
