Abstract

Following new materialist and posthuman agendas, this article deals with
the concept of individuation (Gilbert Simondon, Gilles Deleuze) as a
methodological resource for biographical studies and historical
scholarship at large. It maps premises for the non-anthropocentric
scrutiny of and reflection on individual human activities and focuses on
the unexpectedness which is constituted in the material interactions
and entanglements of everyday life.
