Phenomenological and post-ANT objects


Another intriguing event laid on by CRESC is the forthcoming Materialising the Subject: phenomenological and post-ANT objects in the social sciences conference at Manchester Museum on 26-27 February 2009. This is very much along the phenomenology-ANT axis that we are interested in here at ANTHEM. The key themes and respective speakers are:

  1. After Networks: spatio-temporal analytics – Robert Oppenheim, Matt Candei, Harvey Molotch;
  2. ‘Not Networks Per Se, but Distributed Enactments’ – Martin Holbraad, Monika Buscher, Susanne Kuechler, Soumhya Venkatesan;
  3. Is Phenomenology really an albatross? – Don Ihde, Michael Jackson, Nigel Thrift;
  4. Skilled Practice: cognition as human-artefact-human orientation system – Christina Toren, Tim Ingold, Morten Pedersen;
  5. Does it make any Sense to Say that Objects Have Agency? – John Law, Penny Harvey, Albena Yaneva.
