Infinite Eros: Deleuze, Guattari and Feminist Couplings

Deleuze & Guattari Studies Volume 12, Issue 4

Edited by Janae Sholtz, Cheri Lynne Carr


Seeks to combine feminist voices with Deleuze and Guattari’s work

Feminism and Deleuze and Guattari’s philosophy share a commitment to reinvention and infinite variation, to follow the paths of individual vicissitudes and the sufferings and joys of the worlds in which we live, and to courageously imagine better futures. This volume seeks to open spaces for the intermingling of feminist voices with Deleuze and Guattari’s work, endorsing the transformational potential of such encounters.
