Elizabeth Grosz, Rutgers University, will be giving a talk 'Deleuze,
Bergson, and Becoming' at 2pm, Wednesday, March 16th, 2005 in Room E109
Forgan Smith Building.
In her recent book the Nick of Time: Politics, evolution and the
untimely, (Allen & Unwin, 2004), Elizabeth Grosz juxtaposes the work of
Darwin, Nietzsche and Bergson. Each theorises time as an active
phenomenon with specific effects, with a profound impact on
understandings of the body in relation to time. She shows how their
concepts of life, evolution, and becoming are manifest in the work of
Deleuze and Irigaray.
Elizabeth Grosz is the author of six previous books, including the
widely read Volatile Bodies (Allen & Unwin, 1994). Hugely influential
in many fields of critical theory, she has taught at (amongst others)
the University of Sydney, Monash University, Harvard, Princeton, and
Johns Hopkins University. She is currently Professor in the Department
of Women's and Gender Studies at Rutgers University in the USA.
The talk is presented by the European Philosophy Research Group.
