Hi, I just joined the listserv and wanted to introduce myself.
My name is Brendan McCall, and I am finishing up my undergraduate work at Penn
State. I wanted to join this listserv so I can get a better understanding of
Deleuze and Guattari (naturally, I suppose : ).
Anyway, I have a minimal understanding of D/G and I am now interested in reading
Haraway's Cyborg Manifesto in light of the excerpts I've seen from A Thousand
Plateaus. I don't really know where I am going with that, but I keep coming
back to similarities between D/G's organic model (with rhizomes or whatever) to
Haraway's digital model of connections through cybernetic networks. In the
end, I think both a ripe with potential to my own evolving political PoV.
I'm wondering if anyone here sees something similar or if I am talking about
something that's painfully obvious to all of you. If anyone is interested, I
would like to talk a little about that as I read through A Thousand Plateaus,
which I should probably pick up one of these days... I only have stuff that's
One more thing, I've been wondering if the record label Mille Plateau took the
name from D/G or if its coincidental... Is there a story behind that or
Glad to be aboard,
