Face Politics (Interventions) free pdf The face is central to contemporary politics. In Deleuze and Guattari's work on faciality we find an assertion that the face is a particular politics, and dismantling the face is also a politics. This book explores the politics of such diverse issues as images and faces in photographs and portraits- expressive faces- psychology and neuroscience- face recognition- face blindness- facial injury, disfigurement and face transplants through questions such as: * What it might mean to dismantle the face, and what politics this might entail, in practical terms? * What sort of a politics is it? * Is it already taking place? * Is it a politics that is to be desired, a better politics, a progressive politics? The book opens up a vast field of further research that needs to be taken forward to begin to address the politics of the face more fully, and to elaborate the alternative forms of personhood and politics that dismantling the face opens to view. The book will be agenda-setting for scholars located in the field of international politics in particular but cognate areas as well who want to pursue the implications of face politics for the crucial questions of subjectivity, sovereignty and personhood.
