Latour and the Eighteenth Century

Dec
13

Historian of science Bruno Latour has been one of the most influential figures in recent efforts to rethink the relationship between the human and the inanimate world. His formulation of modernity as a particular intertwining of people and things challenges the prevailing forms of intellectual and cultural history.  This one-day conference collects and puts into conversation the work of scholars of eighteenth-century literature and history who have been influenced by Latour’s work.  Speakers include Jonathan Lamb (Vanderbilt), William Warner (UCSB), Tina Lupton (Warwick), Brad Pasanek (Virginia), Sean Silver (Michigan), and Paddy Bullard (Kent).
