Sanja Dejanovic, Postdoctoral Fellow, PhD Political Thought, York University, 2016
Sanja Dejanovic's postdoctoral project is on freedom conceived of as a mutual letting become; a kind of freedom through which it is possible to approach all beings, not merely the human being, as capable of experiencing freedom. Such experience of freedom is explored in her work through embodied temporality, aesthetic ecology, as well as the logic of capture and violence. During the first year of her postdoc, she was under the mentorship of Dr. Bruce Matthews, Philosophy, Bard College, and during her time at Concordia she will be directed by Dr. Erin Manning.
Dr. Dejanovic began her exploration of the above-mentioned themes in the context of her research for her doctoral thesis at York University, entitled The Paradox of Sense, or on the Event of Thought in Gilles Deleuze’s Philosophy. Drawing from this writing, she is working on a book project on Deleuze and Guattari’s philosophy provisionally entitled “We Are Made of Lines”.
Dr. Dejanovic is the editor of Nancy and the Political with Edinburgh University Press, 2015, and has published a number of journal articles, including, “Through the Fold: On Gilles Deleuze and Jean-Luc Nancy” in Philosophy Today.
