This paper maps the promotional literature of Whitman College at two historical junctures, 1952 and 2016, into a Deleuzian history of capitalism. By analyzing the changing formation of promotional discourse, differences in governmentality between the two junctures become clear. In 1952, Whitman disciplines student subjectivities, while in 2016, Whitman regulates student access to mobility. Continuities in the relationship between knowledge-power and excess serve as a starting point for resistance.
