Deleuze & Guattari

I've just read Frida Denley's theory chapter, which will be a part of her dissertation eventually. Frida is a fellow PhD candidate at Uppsala university and Maria and I are going to her seminar in Uppsala tomorrow.

It was really interesting to read her text, partly because she is using theory I've used myself (primarily Gilles Deleuze and Felíx Guattari, but also new media theoreticians such as Michael Joyce, Jay Bolter and Kate Hayles) and partly because she is attempting to alter the traditional form of a dissertation and give it a slightly postmodern twist.

I'm not sure if this will work however, since the academic genre is rather conservative, but it will certainly be interesting to follow her work in the future.
