About the Event

Bruno Latour is a French philosopher, anthropologist, and sociologist known for his work in science and technology studies, and in developing new lines of inquiry about ecological crises, scientific and religious practices, materiality, modernity, and numerous other subjects. He is a professor at Sciences Po, Paris, a Centennial Professor at the London School of Economics, and a professor-at-large at Cornell University.

At this event, Latour will speak about the concept of sovereignty in connection with the work of Ulrich Beck and others, and will discuss his recent work on “Gaia” in the contexts of globalization, climate change, the crisis in the European Union, migration, and other developments.

This event has reached capacity and we are no longer accepting registrations. The video of the event will be posted on this website three weeks after it takes place.

Cosponsored by the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.
