This Society of Fellows talk, organized by Brian Goldstone and Grant Wythoff, addresses the topic of materiality in a discussion between Bernhard Siegert, Gerd Bucerius Professor of History and Theory of Cultural Techniques, Bauhaus-University Weimar, and Ben Kafka, Associate Professor, Departments of Media, Culture, and Communication and History at New York University. Using Latour’s essay “Has Critique Run Out of Steam” as a starting point, Siegert and Kafka will discuss their respective work and its relation to things, media, cultural techniques, and our experience of the material world.
Eduardo Cadava, Professor of English & Master, Wilson College, Princeton University, will moderate.
The event is open to the public. Seating is first come, first served.
