Lausanne Lecture on Dispositif



The colleagues from Lausanne University have formed a research group on dispositifs and I was invited to give a lecture on May 7. This happened to be the day there new Centre d’études cinématographiques was officially opened, so this was a special occasion. We particuarly discussed the similarities and differences in the way in which we conceptualise dispositif. The Lausanne perspective gives a quite central place to discursive constructions, including literary texts, of what might be called a “cinematic epistemè”.
