The First International Deleuze Studies in Asia Conference will be held in Tamsui, a historic district in the Taipei Metropolitan area, from 31 May-2 June 2013. The conference is organised in association with the journal Deleuze Studies (published by Edinburgh University Press), which has also been affiliated with The International Deleuze Studies Conferences that have been held worldwide consecutively for five years since 2008. Prior to the conference there will be a Deleuze Camp held from 25-29 May 2013. While the camp addresses a wide range of issues related to Deleuze studies the conference will be organised under the theme of ‘Creative Assemblages’.
NECSUS editorial board member Patricia Pisters will deliver a presentation titled ‘Madness, miracles, machines: Living in a delirious world without walls’. Erik Bordeleau will present ‘(Dis)enchanted Taiwanese cinema and machinic animism’. You can read Bordeleau’s NECSUS article on Tsai Ming-Liang here. This is the first Deleuze conference to be hosted in Asia. The conference venue is located at Tamkang University.
