As discussed in the last meeting, we will read and discuss Eduard Glissant's notion of 'Opacity' and the poetics of relations. I want to discuss the possible relation between opacity, eccentricity and Deleuze and Guattari's becoming minor. We are creating a constellation...let's see how they work (or don't) together ...
