Deleuze and Race

Andrew C Lapworth

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review


Despite a number of projects exploring the potential contributions of Gilles Deleuze's
philosophy to feminist, queer, and postcolonial theory in recent years, the question of what his thought can do for understanding race has received considerably less attention. Indeed, and on the few occasions where this question has been addressed, Deleuze's philosophy has typically been dismissed as too abstract or 'otherworldly'to grasp the concrete realities of social difference and domination (Hallward 2006), as well as for its purported ignorance of the bounded material and social conditions under which his concepts were produced.
