Body without Organs: Notes on Deleuze & Guattari, Critical Race Theory and the Socius of Anti-Racism
Ibrahim, Awad
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v36 n1 p13-26 2015
My aim in this article is to epistemologically read Deleuze and Guattari (D & G) against critical race theory (CRT) and simultaneously delineate how D & G's notion of "body without organs" can benefit from CRT. At first glance, especially for language instructors and researchers, these two epistemological frameworks not only compete against each other but in most cases also do not meet. For some, their utility might not even be as obvious given their philosophical and abstract nature. This article is conceptualised to show, in a modest way, their utility on the one hand and how, on the other hand, where and when they meet to create an "anti-racism line of flight". For those who are interested in race, language learning and institutional analysis, this is a line of flight that is full with infinite possibilities, twists and turns and pleasant surprises, which I hope to epistemologically explore.
