European Provocations

In this series we invite thinkers and scholars - thought provokers in their own right - to introduce a short text which has special significance to them.

Deleuze’s Migrants and Nomads: The European Union in 2014

Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building, LSE 



Eva Aldea|, Lecturer, Department of English and Comparative Literature, Goldsmiths, University of London


Chair: Danielle Sands| , Visiting Lecturer, Department of English, QMUL and Forum for European Philosophy Fellow

In 2014 the United Kingdom is again pitted against such a ‘continental’ vision of European geodemographics. Deleuze explicitly defines the nomad as different to the migrant. In this talk, Eva Aldea will assess whether Deleuze’s concept of the nomad is still useful for navigating current events and responses to the European project.
