In recent decades, the field of classics has witnessed a burgeoning interest in postmodern literary theory. Yet the work of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari has received far less attention. Although Deleuze and Guattari were contemporaries of Lacan, Foucault, and Derrida, the latter have elicited significantly greater curiosity from classicists (Janan, “When the Lamp Is Shattered”, 1994; Porter and Buchan, Before Subjectivity?, 2004; Larmour, Miller, and Platter, Rethinking Sexuality, 1998; Leonard, Derrida and Antiquity, 2010). With few exceptions (Holmes, “Deleuze, Lucretius, and the Simulacrum of Naturalism,” 2012), Deleuze and Guattari have appeared only as ancillary figures in classical scholarship.
The panel invites abstracts for 20-minute papers (650 words maximum, excluding bibliography) to be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 24, 2017. Please include the panel name in your subject line, and do not identify yourself in the abstract. Submissions will be blind-refereed by Kyle Khellaf (Yale University), Charles Platter (University of Georgia), and Mario Telò (University of California, Berkeley).
