Deleuze’s distinctive reworkings of affect and intensity have also been central to the reception of his ideas in educational settings. Scholars in education and related disciplines have been drawn to Deleuze’s work in an effort to anticipate the establishment of what are often called ‘affective pedagogies’ (Semetsky 2004, 2010; Hickey-Moody 2007; Probyn 2004; Zembylas 2007). This scholarship conceives of education and learning as intensive processes of affective and material production, in which forces, sensations and intensities are transmitted between bodies in ways that transform their distinctive capacities.
