Multiplicities of Multiplicities: Exploring Deleuze and Guattari Across Educational Contexts

Presented by:
David Robinson-Morris, Ph.D., LSU Ed. Leadership and Research
Gareth Mitchell, Ph.D. Student, LSU Curriculum and Instruction
Maria Wallace, Ph.D. Candidate, LSU Curriculum and Instruction
Shaofei Han, Ph.D. Candidate, LSU Curriculum and Instruction

This symposium brings together four scholars who have jointly read Deleuze and Guattari’s (1987) A Thousand Plateaus to de-territorialize dominant educational discourses within their own scholarly pursuits.  Drawing on Deleuze and Guattari’s notions of faciality, Body without Organs, planes of organization, and becoming, this session challenges normalizing Western discourse of the educative experience. As becoming-scholars, becoming-researchers, becoming-teacher educators, this session resists imposed scientific discourses, liberating notions of the child, the novice teacher, charter schools, postsecondary students, identity, the subject, and the human. Resultantly, educational research is imagined from more-than ontological perspectives.
