Lines of Flight: Gilles Deleuze and the Becoming of World Literature

I am a doctoral student in the department of English and Comparative Literary Studies. My thesis comprises a speculative and interdisciplinary cartography of literary, linguistic and philosophical research which reads works of world literature alongside Gilles Deleuze's concept of the 'line of flight' (ligne de fuite). My research aims to reconfigure the philosophical, political and aesthetic methodologies by which we might think the becoming of world literature beyond the paradigms of both nationalism and globalism. Areas of interest related to the above include contemporary continental philosophy, 'climate fictions' and extinction, and the postcolonial. I am a member of the Postcolonial Studies Association (UK).
