TCRG x AIME 2: “Learning to Make Room”
TCRG continues its engagment with Bruno Latour’s An Inquiry into the Modes of Existence this week with Chapter Four from his new text: “Learning to Make Room”.
In this chapter Latour extends his notion of modes of existence through a discussion of matter and form – and by proposing that enagements with reality require an “exit from matter”.
The chapter can be downloaded here [PDF]. A possibly relevant secondary reading – a short text by Latour from 2007 called “Can We Get Our Materialism Back, Please?”, can also be found here [PDF].
We meet at 5pm on Tuesday October 8th in the Pierre Gorman Room, 1888 Building, University of Melbourne. All welcome.
