"Bruno Latour and the Eighteenth Century," a Two-Day Conference and Seminar
This two-day conference will invite to Michigan leading scholars of eighteenth-century literature and history who have been influenced by the work of historian of science Bruno Latour, bringing them into dialogue with Michigan faculty and graduate students. The event will be composed of two parts: a seminar-style discussion of Latour’s Inquiry into Modes of Existence (August, 2013), and a series of papers, each 30 minutes in length, delivered by participants and chaired by graduate students. Papers presented at the workshop will form a forthcoming volume of The Eighteenth Century: Theory and Interpretation, edited and introduced by the conference organizers.
