2015 Workshop on Cinematic Thinking: Deleuze and Cinema

The sixth cinematic thinking workshop was devoted to considering the legacy of Deleuze's cinema books. For this workshop we asked scholars to return to Deleuze's cinema books in order to re-evaluate their legacy in relation to contemporary cinema, whether by investigating the challenges and opportunities posed by new technologies and social and political realities, or by adding to Deleuze's exploration of cinema through dialogue with the work of other philosophers and theorists, either his specific interlocutors (Plato, Aristotle, Spinoza, Leibniz, Kant, Bergson, Nietzsche, Artaud, Blanchot) or those whose work either resonates with or challenges his thought (Rancière, Badiou, Cavell, Derrida, Lyotard and Lacan).
