Why Guattari? A Liberation of Cartographies, Ecologies and Politics

Following a long-term collaboration between colleagues at the University of Oxford, University of Bristol and the University of New South Wales-Canberra, we are pleased to announce the publication of Why Guattari? A Liberation of Cartographies, Ecologies and Politics (Routledge).

Co-edited by Oxford's Thomas Jellis, Bristol's Joe Gerlach, and UNSW's JD Dewsbury, the book examines Félix Guattari, the French psychoanalyst, philosopher, and radical activist, renowned for an energetic style of thought that cuts across conceptual, political, and institutional spheres. The edited collection features interventions from a range of international scholars, including chapters from alumni of SoGE, including Becky Catarelli, Sasha Engelmann, and Tom Roberts.

Book Launch - 4 July 2019, School of Geography and the Environment

To mark the publication of this edited collection about the work and influence of Félix Guattari, the Technological Life Research Cluster is sponsoring a book launch on Thursday 4 July at 3pm in the Halford Mackinder lecture theatre at the School of Geography and Environment.

Thomas and Joe will talk about the book, the significance of Guattari for thinking about ecology and politics at the present, and will also offer their insights into the process of putting together an edited collection.

Please do join us to celebrate the launch of this fantastic book and to mark the end of the academic year!
