From Structure to Rhizome

I recently discovered the Backdoor Broadcasting Company, a company in the UK which records academic talks, conferences and the like and then posts them online. A recent addition is audio from the talks delivered at the recent "From Structure to Rhizome" conference on transdisciplinarity in post-WWII French thought, which took place at the embattled philosophy department at Middlesex University last month. Included are a fascinating talk by Etienne Balibar on the concept of structure and one by Eric Alliez on the concept of rhizome.

The conference is not only an interesting one, but one which is a testament to the vibrancy of work going on in Middlesex's philosophy department, now under the ax.
