6 November 2012, 17:30 - 19:00

Lady Mitchell Hall, Sidgwick Site

CRASSH lectures supported by the Thriplow Charitable Trust

Professor Bruno Latour



Professor Bruno Latour will give the penultimate lecture in a series of five lectures on Understanding Society. The series culminates in a panel discussion at Kings Place on Tuesday 27 November 2012. 



This lecture takes place between the French publication of Bruno Latour's An Inquiry into Modes of Existence: An Anthropology of the Moderns and the full version of the digital platform in English that allows the inquiry to unfold. This lecture will present the project both in its content - an anthropology of the moderns - and in its procedure - an exploration of the possibility of digital tools to develop academic books as well as collective research.

More about An Inquiry into Modes of Existence: An Anthropology of the Moderns.

Bruno Latour comes to CRASSH as a Mellon CDI (Centre for Disciplinary Innovation) fellow. Further details on his associated seminars will be available in due course.

The lectures are free and open to all, no registration required.
