Between Relational Ontology & New Materialisms w/ Arjun Appadurai

In his lecture, Arjun Appadurai plans to address the gap between the emerging anthropological literature on “relational ontology (Descola, Viveiros de Castro, Bird-David) and the literature on “new materialisms” (Jane Bennet, Diana Coole, Karen Barad, Bruno Latour, Isabelle Stengers) both of which explore the links between human and non-human agency, with Bruno Latour as a major link figure. He will suggest the ways in which anthropological perspectives can enrich the dialogue between theories of materiality and mediation.
