Bruno Latour our new visiting Prof

The eminent French philosopher, anthropologist and sociologist, Professor Bruno Latour has been appointed as Simon and Hallsworth Visiting Professor at Manchester University.

This unique post will involve him working with colleagues in the Alliance MBS-based Manchester Ethnography Network and the Manchester Urban Institute at the School of Environment Education and Development (SEED).

Professor Albena Yaneva from SEED and Professor Damian O’Doherty from Alliance MBS have been working closely together to secure the appointment and have now planned a series of events for the coming year.
The acclaimed author will be giving lectures and hosting seminars in Manchester, while he will also be a keynote speaker at the annual International Ethnography Symposium hosted by the Manchester Ethnography Network at the University of Manchester later this summer.

Professor O’Doherty said the appointment was a real coup for Manchester: “Latour is one of the most important contemporary figures in the humanities and social sciences and his work is cited worldwide…He has had strong links with Manchester for many years and we are delighted to welcome him.”

We’d like to thank Alice Street for a very interesting seminar yesterday – hearing her stories of drones and health infrastructure in Papa New Guinea gave us much to think about.
