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.
