CSD is a collaborative practice based on close reading and performance, with an objective to encourage participants to think beyond pre-given ideas that they already have about a given text and themselves.
To be more specific, the objective is for text and readers to be in immanence.
This paper extends previous work that develops Deleuze’s concept of immanence in a research and education context.
Its focus is a minor practice called Conceptual Speed Dating (CSD), noted by Brian Massumi as a technique for disabling the tendency in group dynamics for participants to perform their acquired knowledge, at the expense of “exploratory thinking.” This paper contribute to Deleuze-Guattarian “immanent pedagogies” in that it outlines Facebook’s value as a tool for implementing CSD — actually, a digitally inflected mode of CSD called Close Reading using Facebook (CRF).
Moreover, critics identify how any real potential afforded by Facebook is limited by commercial stratifications of the platform. 136–143.doi: https://doi.org/10.1080/15505170.2016.1150226, accessed 20 October 2017.
