Deleuze: Texts and Images

The 9th Annual University of South Carolina Comparative Literature Conference,
An International Conference

5th - 8th April, 2007

Over the past two decades, readers of the works of Gilles Deleuze have had
several opportunities to participate in international conferences held at Trent
University and organized by Constantin V. Boundas. In that tradition, we
announce the organization of a conference to take place on the campus of the
University of South Carolina(Columbia, SC, USA), between April 5 and 8, 2007,
sponsored by the Program in Comparative Literature , the English Department,
and the College of Arts and Sciences.

The conference theme, "Gilles Deleuze: texts and images," is meant to be
understood inclusively rather than exclusively. That is, while recognizing the
conference's focus on the work of Gilles Deleuze, the organizers encourage
broad and comparative interpretations and commentaries from Deleuzian
perspectives on subjects such as literature, philosophy, painting and film, as
well as exegeses of Deleuze's body of work that engage with ontological and
epistemological concepts and problems. Presentations by the invited plenary
speakers - Eric Alliez, Ronald Bogue, Constantin V. Boundas, and Elizabeth
Grosz - will be supplemented by speakers in parallel sessions.

The conference will be held on the historic campus of the University of South
Carolina ( The weather in April will be
mild, and the campus will be in bloom. Columbia is mid-sized city with a major
airport and is easily accessible. It is the capital of South Carolina and has
many fine restaurants. Conference participants will be lodged on campus at
the new Inn at USC (; rooms have been reserved at a
special conference rate of $116.00 for those making their reservations by
February 20, 2007. There are also other hotels nearby.

Those interested in speaking at the conference should send a title, a 750-word
abstract, and a 250-word bibliographical biography to as a
Word or RTF attachment no later than October 1, 2006. Additional details will
be available at
