ANTHEM session: Graham Harman on assemblage theory


The ANTHEM group will be meeting from 4 to 7pm on Thursday 27 November 2008 at the London School of Economics and Political Science. We will be discussing a recent paper by Graham Harman, entitled “The Assemblage Theory of Society,” which examines the philosophical assumptions behind Manuel DeLanda’s Deleuzian assemblage theory, while contrasting it with the ontology of Bruno Latour. The main themes of the paper are realism, assemblage, essence, and emergence. We also expect Graham Harman to join us at some point (assuming his flight arrives on time).

If you are interested in attending this discussion, please contact Peter Erdélyi for a copy of the paper and for further details. Due to room capacity limitations places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Yours sincerely Dr. Jochen Büchel
