Synopsis: Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia turns fifty in 2022. Awash as we are in libidinally-driven fantasy systems that reify pathological desire and injury as mythology, paranoid distortion as reality, and the resulting pair as ideology weaponized as moral justice, Anti-Oedipus would appear to be as urgent today as it was a half-century ago. The proposed session would be an occasion to explore it anew, both in its own right, and in terms of its enduring influence and importance.

All approaches are welcome.

Submission guidelines: Abstracts, up to 300 words in length, should be submitted, by December 23, 2021, (i) using the conference submission link at, and (ii) by email, together with corresponding cvs, to Trip McCrossin ( and Jerry Piven ( (Please note the following PCA/ACA policy: "One person cannot be added to more than one paper proposal per conference.
