Rethinking the Body via Deleuze and Guattari
0.5 Credit

The work of Deleuze and Guattari has been used extensively to analyze questions of embodiment and subjectivity in ways that have become productive for social theorists and philosophers of body politics. This course engages a critique of modernist conceptions of the body and explores the ways in which theory inspired by Deleuze and Guattari contributes to the cultural analysis of embodiment, with a focus on its importance for affirming otherwise marginalized bodies.
