This research seminar aims to disclose how creative practice through writing, filmmaking and considerations of spatial design (particularly housed within the ruling symbolic of the University) can open onto something proximate to a poetics of the feminine. Further, it is not only a question of sexual difference here that inaugurates the trembling of propositional and rational forms of knowing, and yet for many it is the body that has been a helpful place to start. This seminar brings Deleuze and Guattari’s vitalist philosophy on the image (affect and percept) into proximity with the language-body-projects of Écriture Féminines (Irigrary, Cixous, Le Doeuff, Kristeva).
