Edited by: Leyla Haferkamp, Hanjo Berressem

Deleuzian Events: Writing / History brings together articles that deal with Gilles Deleuze's concept of "the event," many of them written by leading Deleuze scholars. The eminently transdisciplinary collection relates the Deleuzian event to the larger cultural field, addressing not only the philosophy of the event, but also its history, its politics and its presence in the arts. Among the variety of topics are zeta-physics, modern dance and postcolonial history. It is indispensable reading for anyone interested in how to make Deleuzian philosophy a productive force within contemporary life.
