A World Without Latour at WTMC Annual Meeting

On Friday 24 February, Harpo ‘t Hart will participate in the programme A World without Latour, part of the WTMC (Netherlands Graduate Research School of Science, Technology and Modern Culture) Annual Meeting at De Balie Amsterdam.

In this session, we will commemorate Bruno Latour, his work, and his importance for STS. The title of this session A World Without Latour can be understood in various ways, purposefully so. What does a world without a Latour-view look like? What understandings of objects, relations, networks, humans, nature, and technology did we have before Latour – what twists did he give to them? Which worlds have remained relatively untouched by Latour, and continue to live without his approach? How do we go on now that we can no longer rely on Latour to make space for experiments across STS (Science, Technology, and Society) theory and practice?

This session is chaired by Huub Dijstelbloem (University of Amsterdam) and Noortje Marres (University of Warwick)

Harpo ‘t Hart will speak about Art and activism. Other speakers include:

— Latour and STS – Huub Dijstelbloem (University of Amsterdam)

— Gaia / the Climate Regime/Parliament of Things – Noortje Marres (University of Warwick)

— Latour and philosophy – Gerard de Vries (University of Amsterdam)
