TCRG x AIME 2: “Learning to Make Room”

by lukevanryn

Hi all,

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.
