Paul et al,
Jean-Clet's newest hasn't made it to Montreal yet. The bookstores
here have two of his works, _Variations_ (which is wonderful) and
something called l'Ossuaire which I'll have to peruse.
On the actual/virtual score there is something recent by Massumi
in a journal called _Society and Space_ (1996, vol. 14, no.4; ISSN
0263 7758), with a very stimulating Deleuzo-feminist editor's
intro. by Megan Morris, including a reading of the lines of force in
_Muriel's Wedding_. Massumi's recent something is called
"Becoming-Deleuzian" and is about reading Deleuze situatedly -- it
bespeaks the actualizations involved in reading (and resonating with
D's concepts) as well as the virtualization; it is about necessity
as well as freedom; there is a touch of another thinking in me too.
Subheadings: Concept; Composition; Pragmatics; Ethics; Limit; Circuit;
Virtual Topic. Key: surrendering to the paradoxial point. Hightlight:"
Drunkennes as the triumphant irruption of the plant in us."
There are pieces by Sandi Buckley (on Japanese kitchens) and Cindi
Katz (on minor theory in geography...i'm about to read this).
Stuff by Doel, Muecke and Ghassan Hage as well.
How did the Melbourne conference go? It's about time we got a
